Today we read the fifth chapter of the Apostle Paul’s first letter to Timothy and two chapters of Jeremiah
1 Timothy 5 outlines the proper treatment of church members, honor the widows and honor the elders. Then Paul urged Timothy to drink a little wine for his stomach’s sake.
Jeremiah 13. Jeremiah bought a linen belt, it got ruined. Then God told about wineskins. Both were object lessons for what was to befall Jerusalem, for pride precedes captivity.
Jeremiah 14. There as to be drought, sword, famine and pestilence, the people pleaded for mercy.
