Today we listen to a message from Pastor Joe Schimmel about how funerals help us take stock of our own lives, seek God, and restore relationships.
“A good name is better than a good ointment, And the day of one’s death is better than the day of one’s birth. It is better to go to a house of mourning Than to go to a house of feasting, Because that is the end of every man, And the living takes it to heart. Sorrow is better than laughter, For when a face is sad a heart may be happy. The mind of the wise is in the house of mourning,
While the mind of fools is in the house of pleasure.”
