When Death Comes . . .
Death, it comes to all of us, yet how we resist it. We want to put off the inevitable as long as we can.
Jesus in his dying, taught us so much about living. In all of his suffering, he didn’t forget to think of others, to comfort the women who were grieving. He made sure his mother was taken care of and he offered forgiveness to those who had asked for his death.
So we need to live, being more concerned about others than ourselves, taking care of those we love, and offering forgiveness wherever forgiveness is required. If we live our lives this way, then we need not fear death.
“Father, forgive them, they know not what they do.” Luke 23:34
