I'm not taking over any daily verses but, with Ursen's absence and the recent recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, I thought it appropriate to say something. "Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing." Matthew 23:37 If Christ cared enough to lament, specifically, Jerusalem falling away from Him I take a small measure of joy in it being recognized as Israel's capital. I don't care what the world thinks about Jerusalem, I care about what God does. Small progress in a fallen world but FINALLY, after decades, at least there is some. Thank God.
