"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 2:13
When I first read this, I wondered how anyone would even want to leave a Fountain of Living Water to try to find another source! But as I meditated on this verse, the Lord showed me a startling truth. This happens with us, with me today! I will turn aside from the simple truths of God's Word to find a "better way" to do things, even good things! But apart from the Source of Living Water, there is nothing that I can do that will even "hold water". (Excuse the pun, but it fit!) How will I get my water today?
