Luke 19:41 NASB "When He approached Jerusalem, He saw the city and wept over it,"I had to turn it off! Today's verse is Jesus entering the city where they were laying palms at His Feet and praising Him but Jesus wept over the city He was about to enter!" After watching the news, seeing the pictures and videos of the destruction of the cities in Ukraine, I had to turn it off! I sat for a moment and thought of the people, the children, what would become of their lives and the tears began to flow. When we see the devastation, not so much for the buildings but for the people, it should bring us to our knees in prayer. Jesus, entering into the city of Jerusalem, knew what He would face the following week, and He began to cry for the people. I wonder, do we cry for the people who don't know Jesus as Lord and Savior?! We can do more than cry, we can share the love of Christ everyday, with someone, comforting them in their struggles and why not start today! peace, tom
