“My people have commited two sins:
Thay have forsaken me, the spring of living water,
and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water”
– Jeremiah 2.13
As I was reading these verses this morning I was reminded of how often I go looking for my joy and peace, when I already have the source of it right here. Why is it that we can know with our minds that all contentment is found in God alone, yet still pursue other people and circumstance to fulfull our desires. Are we really that stupid?
Right in front of us…God’s word, the church, spiritual disciplines…we have a “spring of living water”, what makes us go out and dig our own cisterns?
