November 10 - Jeremiah 23

In the midst of the condemnation of the priests who failed to shepherd and the Parable of the Talents - both texts doing their Law work of laying me low - there was this strengthening word that lifted up my head (Psalm 24:7ff) so that I might rejoice in the coming of my King, David's righteous branch:
The LORD is our righteousness.  (Jeremiah 23:6)
That is His name, the one who has come and will come again to save me and the rest of His people from their sins.  Amen.
