Good Mourning?

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 take it to heart.” (Ecclesiastes 7:2)

Did we hear that right? There’s such a thing as good mourning? Most would say good ridden to an idea like that, but Solomon says nothing reminds us of our destination likeGraveyard the visible departure of others. The sight of mortality often demands an examination of our own morality, and its effects can be downright sobering to a heart drunk with carnal fun and frivolity! So yes, there is such a thing as good mourning, because the mourning helps prepare us for the night to come, for the way we end our day determines how we will begin the next. EA

I must work the works of Him who sent Me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work.” (John 9:4)
