Our Daily Bread 1 August 2021 Sunday Devotional – Who Needs Your Support? written by Mike Wittmer

TOPIC: WHO NEEDS YOUR SUPPORTS?

Bible in a Year: Psalms 57–59; Romans 4

Key Verse: Ahikam son of Shaphan supported Jeremiah, and so he was not handed over to the people to be put to death. – Jeremiah 26:24

Today’s Scripture: Jeremiah 26:12–15, 20–24

MESSAGE

Jeremiah, a truly tormented soul, was born the son of Hilkiah, of the priestly line, and grew up in the village of Anathoth (Jeremiah 1:1), to the northeast of Jerusalem. Often referred to as “the weeping prophet,” his season of ministry came at one of the darkest hours in the history of the people of God. Jeremiah prophesied and then witnessed the devastation of Jerusalem and the taking of much of its citizenry into captivity. Historians speak of the savagery of the conquest; Jeremiah’s reaction to those atrocities forms the substance of his second Old Testament book, Lamentations. By: Bill Crowder

Clifford Williams was sentenced to die for a murder he didn’t commit. From death row, he vainly filed motions to reconsider the evidence against him. Each petition was denied—for forty-two years. Then attorney Shelley Thibodeau learned of his case. She found that not only was there no evidence to convict Williams but that another man had confessed to the crime. At the age of seventy-six, Williams was finally exonerated and released.

The prophets Jeremiah and Uriah were also in deep trouble. They had told Judah that God promised to judge His people if they didn’t repent (Jeremiah 26:12–13, 20). This message angered the people and officials of Judah, who sought to kill both prophets. They succeeded with Uriah.

He fled to Egypt but was brought back to face the king, who “had him struck down with a sword” (v. 23). Why didn’t they kill Jeremiah? In part, because Ahikam “stood up for Jeremiah” (NLT), “and so he was not handed over to the people to be put to death” (v. 24).

We may not know anyone facing death, but we probably know someone who could use our support. Whose rights are trampled? |Whose talents are dismissed? Whose voice isn’t heard? It may be risky to step out like Thibodeau or Ahikam, but it’s so right. Who needs us to stand up for them as God guides us? By: Mike Wittmer

Today’s Reflection: Whom can you stand with? If you voice your support, what do you think might happen to them, to you, and to others?
