Do the Good Thing

Lamentations 3:1 (KJV)
I am the man that hath seen affliction by the rod of his wrath.

I believe Jeremiah.

I do not believe he was the only man who had seen affliction by the rod of His wrath. But I do believe he was uniquely called of God to suffer. I also believe that the reason for this calling was to serve as an example.

Jeremiah presented, in this chapter:

  • A litany of troubles followed by
  • A list of good things and returned to
  • A load of burden

What is good, is good even in the midst of trouble.

It might seem like there is a good excuse to do something other than the good thing when everything seems bad. Don’t buy it. Good is good all the time.

Therefore do the good thing.
