    She had ruined her life and the lives of others as well. If you do not love God with all your soul, and with all your The broken cistern. book, and with all your strength, then you leak. If you are not putting God first place in your life, then you have sprung a leak. God is asking you to see what you have been doing with your life, and you will have to say that you spent all your resources on yourself? When I was a teenager, I heard my pastor tell of several people in a revival service who had come to the altar, and were on their knees praying.

    We are constantly seeking more pleasures and ways to satisfy ourselves. They knew what it was to dig cisterns to collect runoff, and they knew what it was to lift buckets of water from the cistern and carry them to their gardens. But instead of feeling defensive I felt self pity because I quickly realized, my god was myself; everything I did was for my glory. The church has often tried to use the government to achieve its goals. No man will come to His everlasting river and go thirsty.

    If you are not obeying the great commission, then you have a leak. Maybe we could try to excuse them for digging their own cisterns. God is asking you to see what you have been doing with your life, and you will have to say that you spent all your resources on yourself? But we continually do. He is our Maker. Why would we prefer to do things our way rather than accept God's way?

It is absolutely foolish to have the knowledge of God and His unending mercies, and ignore it. The preceding verses in chapter 2 reflect upon the transition of Israel, from being satisfied in God to seeking satisfaction on their own terms.
