The Exile: Lamentations 5

Daily Devotionals

At the end of the book of Lamentations, Stuart Holman considers the question of ‘hope,’ as Jeremiah prays through the grief and tragedy of Judah’s exile into Babylon. As the Christian enters into Jeremiah’s lament, they also learn to lament over their own sin, their own failures and the tragedies of their lives in a fallen world. Lamentations trains God’s person to rightly grieve in the context of hope.
