60IN60 Day 31 - Wed May 31

It's Day 31 and we're in Jeremiah 18.

If it's hard to understand what you're reading in the Bible, make sure you have a translation that's a good fit for you. Reading the King James (a great historic translation) can be particularly difficult because of the antiquated language. Among the good options available today: New International Version (good all-around translation), English Standard Version (good all-around translation), New American Standard (a more literal translation, closer to the original manuscripts), and New Living Translation (a translation that focuses on readability and understandability). 

Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 6 - Am I willing to be molded as He desires or do I want to be the one calling the shots?

If you want to read the chapter online, here's a link.

Your Questions and Comments:
- "Luke 13:34 - you state God spoke to  you on this verse. We complain about the moral state of America, our attitude should be 'pained longing.' What do you mean by pained longing?" - The verse in question is the one where Jesus cries out over Jerusalem, saying He wishes He could gather the people under His wings but Jerusalem was unwilling. In other words, He "longs" to gather them and have them want that relationship with God and it "pains" Him that the Jewish people were unwilling. In a similar way, as we see our country far from God, I think one way to express what our attitude should be toward that is "pained longing." I "long" for my country to come back to God and it "pains" me that they have no interest in doing so.
