Jeremiah 29:4-7

This is what the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, the God of Israel, says to all the captives he has exiled to Babylon from Jerusalem: 5 “Build homes, and plan to stay. Plant gardens, and eat the food they produce. 6 Marry and have children. Then find spouses for them so that you may have many grandchildren. Multiply! Do not dwindle away! 7 And work for the peace and prosperity of the city where I sent you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, for its welfare will determine your welfare.”


Q: What does God instruct the people to do while in captivity in Babylon?

Q: Why is it important to work for “the peace and prosperity of the city”? Are you working for the peace and prosperity of your city?

Q: Are your political views held in such a way that they promote division or peace and prosperity?
