The Great Multitude in White Robes

What can we learn about COVID from Lamentations?

What can we learn about COVID from Lamentations? I believe we can learn a lot. If we want to. Lamentations is about how the Israelites reacted to being defeated, having their homes and cities totally destroyed, and then either being in captivity in their homeland or being exiled to the land of their conqueror. Sounds pretty bad, right? Lamentations was a look at how the people reacted to those events. Reactions like anger. Blame. Self-pity.

But then they moved on to the point of recognizing what was really happening. They also moved on to the realization that there was hope. And where that hope was going to come from. So yeah – it sounds like we can learn quite a bit from Lamentations. The thing is though, the lessons learned back then were rather short-termed. Soon forgotten. Therefore, if we do learn anything from their experiences, the challenge for us is to hopefully remember what we learned.

Wipe away every tear: the greatest miracle?

Wipe away every tear from their eyes: the greatest miracle?

And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.  This tells of a time when we won’t cry anymore.  Will this be the greatest miracle in the Bible?  Maybe that depends.  For instance – who is being talked about here.  Who’s eyes are their eyes?  And what does wipe away every tear actually mean?
