Leviticus 26:1-46; Psalm 140:1-141:1-10; Mark 10:32-52

It is better to go to the house of mourning, than to go to the house of feasting: for that is the end of all men; and the living will lay it to his heart. Ecclesiastes 7:2

Amidst the sorrow of losing a loved one comes great opportunities for a Christian to witness. Often you will find that because unsaved friends are occupied with the concept of death and eternity we can confirm the realities of our faith and let others know that our Lord carries us. —Brian Russell

Safe in the arms of Jesus,
Safe on His gentle breast,
There by His love o’ershaded,
Sweetly my soul can rest. —Mrs. Van Alstyne
