The Scripture for today, April 24, is Jeremiah 4:24 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:
“I looked at the mountains and they were quaking, all the hills were swaying.”
We have expressions that something is “as eternal as the mountains” or “as old as the hills”. Perhaps earthquakes are a good reminder to us that nothing on earth is eternal. That also includes things, people, power, position, belongings. Eventually they quake and sway and are gone. Only that which is spiritual is forever.
