This week's lesson: October 25 Jeremiah and the Fall of Judah
Key Verse: Psalm 34:18 Big Idea: God is close to people with broken hearts, so we can find comfort in Him when we're sad. Bible Basis: Jeremiah 27-28, 37-44; 2 Kings 25; Lamentations 1 There was a lot to be sad about in Jeremiah’s day. The people of Israel had turned against God and were about to experience the consequences of their rebellion. Jeremiah – God’s prophet – had over and over again tried to get through to the people. He tried to convince them to turn from their sin and back to God. But they wouldn’t listen. The weight of Jeremiah’s heartbreak would have been crushing, but God drew near to strengthen and comfort him.
