The Poor Substitute
“Wherefore I will yet plead with you, saith the LORD, and with your children's children will I plead. For pass over the isles of Chittim, and see; and send unto Kedar, and consider diligently, and see if there be such a thing. Hath a nation changed their gods, which are yet no gods? but my people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit. Be astonished, O ye heavens, at this, and be horribly afraid, be ye very desolate, saith the LORD. For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.” (Jeremiah 2:9-13)
Today’s Morsel: One of the things we see in the world today is that they continue to offer you things to quench your thirst that do not work. None of these things really quench your thirst. As Jesus told the woman at the well, “Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” (John 4:13-14) You can either keep being deceived by the world into thinking that other things can satisfy you, or you can return to the fountain of living water, drink and live forever.
Sing: Drinking at the springs of living water, happy now am I, my soul they satisfy. Drinking at the springs of living waters, a wonderful and bountiful supply.
Thought For Today: Only Jesus can satisfy the soul.
