Chapter-a-Day Ezekiel 24

God’s Message came to
me: "Son of man, I’m about to take from you the delight of your life—a
real blow, I know. But, please, no tears. Keep your grief to yourself.
No public mourning. Get dressed as usual and go about your work—none of
the usual funeral rituals."
Ezekiel 24:15-17 (TM)
