Untruth holds no water; it cannot help

Morning: Psalms 61, 62; Jeremiah 2:1-13; Romans 1:16-25
Evening: Psalms 68:1-36; John 4:43-54
Stories that ‘hold no water’ are untrue. Jeremiah calls them “cracked cisterns” because they cannot hold God’s “living water,” and that is the truth we seek. When people believe untruths, there is trouble.  Belief is complicated, though. We may think we cannot be certain of something without proof. Yet with proof, belief is irrelevant! Jesus complained that some refused to believe him without seeing “signs and wonders.” He performed signs, though, not to prove who he was but because he could help. Untruths cannot hold the living water we need; and they cannot help.
