Daily Meditation for March 15, 2012

Posted by Site Webmaster on Thursday, March 15, 2012, In : Daily Meditations 

“They did not obey or incline their ear, but walked in their own coun­sels and the stubbornness of their evil hearts, and went backward and not for­ward.” (Jeremiah 7:24, RSV)

The Christian life is sometimes compared to a journey. On a journey, we are headed toward a destination, and we go forward to arrive there.
