People ask me, Where is God in the face of suffering? Or when I was reading the book of Job over the summer I was like, WHY God did you allowed a good, godly man to suffer? Why would a Good and loving God do such a thing? The list goes on…
The brother died.
Martha was bitter
Jesus was troubled
Jesus, the Son of God, the King, Christ and holy one, [ insert your opinion about Jesus here] didn’t turn his nose down at the women. He stood next to them and wept. He showed his emotion and first human reaction. Grief.
I can stand next to my family in the mist of a bereavement and weep. Just like Jesus did.
