Jeremiah 2; 7
“𝚃𝚑𝚎𝚢 𝚑𝚊𝚟𝚎 𝚏𝚘𝚛𝚜𝚊𝚔𝚎𝚗 𝚖𝚎 𝚝𝚑𝚎 𝚏𝚘𝚞𝚗𝚝𝚊𝚒𝚗 𝚘𝚏 𝚕𝚒𝚟𝚒𝚗𝚐 𝚠𝚊𝚝𝚎𝚛𝚜”
In the arid region where the Israelites lived, people stored precious water in underground reservoirs called cisterns.
Why would receiving water from a fountain be better than relying on a cistern?
What does it mean to forsake “the fountain of living waters”?
What do you think the “broken cisterns” mentioned in Jeremiah 2:13 might symbolize? As you read Jeremiah 2 and 7, notice how the people were forsaking the Lord’s living waters, and think about how you are receiving living water in your life.
Jeremiah 7 is addressed to those who were entering “the gate of the Lord’s house … to worship the Lord” (Jeremiah 7:2). Yet despite this outward appearance of devotion, they were guilty of great wickedness (see verses 2–11).
