Jeremiah is known as the "weeping prophet." He was a prophet of compassion and concert – heartbroken over the sin of his people. Jeremiah's was a life of service and suffering. He was plagued with doubts of his own work, viewed as a traitor, and persecuted for the message of God. He eventually saw the fulfillment of his prophecy – the destruction of Jerusalem. Yet, Jeremiah's life can be a lesson for us today. His life shows believers today how to live in the midst of difficulty.
