Luke 8:52

Luke 8:52

Meanwhile, all the people were wailing and mourning for her. "Stop wailing," Jesus said. "She is not dead but asleep."

Jesus is saying by his actions, “If I have you by the hand, death itself is as non-threatening as sleep. Death is not the final scene in the play of life. There is an eternal grand finale.

After Thought

I choose gentleness… Nothing is won by force. I choose to be gentle. If I raise my voice may it be only in praise. If I clench my fist, may it be only in prayer. If I make a demand, may it be only of myself.
