Lazaroo – Tuesday, May 22, 2012

May 22, 2012 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with a listening heart:

“Is it nothing to you, all you who pass by?”
(Lamentations 1:12)

Jeremiah was in agony, Jesus.

Your people had sinned so greatly
that their enemies had overrun them.

Evil people had carried off their children.
Most of Jerusalem’s population had fled.

Those who were left had been turned into slaves.

But as Jeremiah wept, mourned and wailed, he looked around – and to his shock –

his neighbors were going about their business
as if nothing had happened

as if this was normal
something to be adjusted to and shrugged off.

Is anything like this going on today?

Is my own sleeping country in danger of being overrun by our many sins?

Anyone who stands up and says so
is labeled an alarmist.

Just like Jeremiah
who accurately predicted Jerusalem’s fall.

In our smugness we forget, don’t we?

That a nation can also be overrun by Your enemies

from within.
