"Comfort one another" (1 Thessalonians 4: 18)
Paul is speaking about bereavement. He assures the Thessalonians, and us, that those who have died are in God's care, and they will be called together for the eternal worship of heaven. Christian hope helps us bear the pain of bereavement, and Christian love helps us to care for those who endure the pain of loss.
Father, we entrust to your care all who have gone before us in faith and love. Sustain us with the hope that we may be gathered with them into eternal peace and joy. Amen.
