Our passage from the Word of God today is Psalms 116:15. It reads, "Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints."

Our quote for today is from C.S. Lewis. He said, “It is hard to have patience with people who say ‘There is no death’ or ‘Death doesn't matter.’ There is death. And whatever it is matters. And whatever happens has consequences, and it and they are irrevocable and irreversible. You might as well say that birth doesn't matter.”

Our problem today is "The Problem of Death in Your Life" (part 6) from the book, "The Guide to Biblical Counseling" by Dr. Tim Clinton and Dr. Ron Hawkins. 

Allow us to discuss some biblical insights on this topic:

2 Samuel 12:23 reads, “But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.”

After the death of David and Bathsheba’s first son, David’s only consolation was that eventually he would “go to him.” While the child was alive, David had begged God to spare his life. When the child died, however, David was confident that the boy was with God and he would see him again.

Christian parents who have faced the devastation of the death of a young child can take hope in David’s faith that God will bring the little ones to Himself. 

Psalm 116:15 reads, “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.”

It is sad when loved ones die, and it is natural to grieve. God says that the death of a believer is “precious in the sight of the Lord.” For believers, death is merely a gateway into their home in heaven where they ultimately belong.
