Jeremiah 29: 1-14 | For Vienna
February 11, 2024
In the final entry of our Visions and Values series, Johnny reminds us of how God called the Israelites to care for the land of Babylno during their time of exile. Although Babylon was not their eternal home, it was their home for the present, and they were meant to make it a home that honors God with their conduct. They made friends, they invested in their neighborhoods, and they gave their daughters to be married- God did not want them to stay in tents and ignore the world they were exiled in. Instead, they were called to seek Babylon’s shalom.
