August 9: Tisha b’Av

Call to repent

Often American educators talk about “the 3 R’s” meaning: reading, writing and arithmetic.”

Consider the “3 R’s” of relationship with God: rest, reflect and repent.  If we observe these three “R’s” the result will be: restoration and rejoicing!

Lamentations 3:39-42

Why should a living man complain,

A man for the punishment of his sins?

Let us search out and examine our ways,

And turn back to the Lord;

Let us lift our hearts and hands

To God in heaven.

We have transgressed and rebelled;

You have not pardoned.
