Today we read the first chapter of the Apostle Paul’s letter to Titus and two chapters of Jeremiah.
Titus 1. After the customary greeting, the apostle Paul instructed Titus to appointing elders and listed the qualifications for elders and their duties. Be careful, some Cretans are corrupt!
Jeremiah 37. Zedekiah held on to the vain hope that the Chaldeans would be defeated. Jeremiah prophesied otherwise, so he was put in prison.
Jeremiah 38. Jeremiah was in the dungeon and near death so they pulled him up. Zedekiah feared for his life, and Jeremiah’s advice was: Give in to Babylon and you will live.
