Precious In the Eyes of God
"Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his faithful servants."
Often during the event of the loss of a loved one in the church family I have been compelled to send a letter of comfort. There is the fact that if we and our loved on are saved, we will be reunited in heaven one day. But in my studies concerning death and dying, I find still another comfort: Known as the "continuum of existence", we know that many of the attributes such as personality, habits, looks, etc. are carried on in the next generation so that some things concerning our loved one live on.
Let's praise God for this unspeakable gift!
