The prophetic passage of Scripture that we are looking at today is Jeremiah 12:14-17.

Our second coming quote for today is from Sam Morris. He said, “Jesus tells us to keep our eyes on His coming and not get too busy building our little homes, accumulating an old-age pension, laying up money in the bank for a rainy day. He wants us to obey Him, look for Him, walk with Him, and let not our hearts become saturated with the things of this world.”
