Today we read the second chapter of First Timothy and two chapters of Jeremiah
1 Timothy 2. Paul reminds the believers to pray for all, including the people of authority. Then he explains the roles for men and women in the Church.
Jeremiah 7. The prophet reminds the reader that false religion is worthless, and proclaims judgment on perverted religion.
Jeremiah 8 tells of the valley of slaughter, of sin and punishment and ends up with the question : “Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there?“
