Lamentations is not a book we study very often. It is often one of the books we skip past when going through a reading schedule. But there is a lot to learn from such writing. Jeremiah reflects on the collapse of Israel's culture and their relationship with God, and grieves over the sin that caused such a great loss. As we look at the way Jeremiah expresses his grief balanced with his hope in an unfailing, uncompromising, and faithful God, we are offered a pattern of how we may express pain and loss with faithfulness and grace.
