Jeremiah felt that way, too. When God revealed what was going to happen to Judah because of their sinfulness, Jeremiah was heartbroken. Read Jeremiah 8:18–9:1 in your Bible. Underline all the words and phrases that express Jeremiah’s grief over what was going to happen. Then, ask yourself:

What’s your response to sin in your life?
What sinfulness in your own life has God broken your heart over? Confess it and seek His forgiveness today.
What sinfulness or circumstances in the world has God broken your heart over?
What steps will you take to make a difference—big or small!—in those areas this week?
