Capital City

Have you been to your capital city? I went to Albany, New York on my 8th grade class field trip. Seeing our state capital was informative and exciting. I even caught a glimpse of our governor, Nelson Rockefeller. I remember walking the steps of a beautiful staircase and peering up to gaze at the dome ceiling of the capital building.

I also have memories of our nation’s capital, Washington D.C. At the age of 12, I first toured the city with my family. I have returned a few times. Though always a thrill, I could not recapture the awe of first viewing Lincoln Monument and the White House. I cannot imagine Jesus’ sadness as He looked at Jerusalem, the capital city.

“Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were unwilling. Behold, your house is being left to you desolate! For I say to you, from now on you will not see Me until you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord (Matthew 23:37-39 NASB)!”
