The greatest tragedy

“My people are foolish and do not know me,” says the Lord Jeremiah 4:22; NLT).

They never call on the Lord (Psalm 14:2-4; NIV).

You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realise that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked (Revelation 3:17; NIV).

He loves us with unfailing love (Psalm 117:2; NLT).

************************************

Lord God,
The greatest tragedy
Of all
Is living unaware of you,
And of your love.
