Daily Devotionals Day – 9: Why Go To The House Of Mourning?

3 reasons why you SHOULD go to the house of mourning. (Even when it is a difficult thing to do.)

Welcome to Day 9 of my 30 Daily Devotional Challenge.

If you missed the FIRST part of this story on Day 8, you can watch it below.


What caused Andrew to say to me he didn’t feel like having any fun today?

Here’s the BACKSTORY: Andrew and I had just attended the funeral of our friend Dennis. Andrew had been reluctant to go but I insisted that we should. Looking back, I believe his initial objection was because he didn’t like to be around sad situations. But as I told him and as I’ll share here, there were reasons we SHOUD go.

REASON 1: IT WAS A WAY TO HONOR OUR FRIEND DENNIS – Dennis had been a good friend and had done so many things for our family. Going to his funeral was our way we good honor that friendship and honor the type of person he was.

REASON 2: IT WAS A WAY TO ENCOURAGE HIS WIFE CAROL – Dennis died from complications from ALS. His wife, Carol took amazing care of him. Attending the funeral was our way we could support her during this difficult time and it was our way to show our respect for the kind of person she is.

REASON 3: IT’S IN YOUR BEST INTEREST – I would like to say that I initially told Andrew it was in his best interest to attend but I didn’t. It wasn’t until we were on our way home and Andrew told me how he felt that I remembered a principle that would make him feel better.

=> In my next article, I want to share that PRINCIPLE with you.
