There’s No Place Like Home

Verse: Jeremiah 50:6-7

Additional Scripture Readings:

Psalm 32:7

Psalm 84:1–4

The couch doesn’t match the drapes. The master bedroom is furnished with a jumble of antiques and garage-sale finds. The dishes, chipped and tired, were passed down from Grandma. Out front, a collection of trikes and bikes sprawl across a patch of grass. Below the front door lies a cheery mat reading in embellished cursive, “WELCOME.” And that’s just how we feel inside this well-worn house. It might seem strange to some passersby. But it makes sense to us. Here is peace and safety because here is home and there’s no place like it.

Do you have such a haven? Jeremiah talks about God as being our resting place, our pasture. In his presence, we find the safety and peace we long for. Whether in a palatial, well-coordinated home or in a humble bungalow, we can find the home of our dreams when we find it in God. When we find rest in the presence of God, we know for certain that there’s no place like home.
