Key Verse: “And when the Lord saw her, he had
compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not” (Luke


Once during Queen Victoria’s reign, she heard that the
wife of a common labourer had lost her baby. Having
experienced deep sorrow herself, she felt moved to
express her sympathy. So she called on the bereaved
woman one day and spent some time with her. After she
left, the neighbours asked what the queen had said.
“Nothing,” replied the grieving mother. “She simply put
her hands on mine, and we silently wept together.”
From our passage, Jesus came with His disciples and
much people to the city of Nain where He interrupted a
funeral by raising the young man back to life. He had
identified the mother of the deceased, who was a poor
widow, telling her to ‘weep not’. Then, He stopped the
procession and commanded the dead man to rise and
he came back to life.

The compassion of Jesus was such a great comfort to
many in His days. That He could remember a poor
widow in the obscure city of Nain, underscores His
willingness to identify with the poor and suffering
citizens of His nation. He knew just how heartbroken
this poor widow was, trying to cope with the double
tragedy of losing a husband and an only son. The
mourners around her could provide little comfort as
their power was limited. They could only weep with her
and not be able to help the situation of the bereaved

No matter what we are passing through today, we must
remember that Christ is never too late. Weeping may
endure for a night but joy comes in the morning (Psalm
30:5). He is our Joy, our Comfort and Hiding Place in
the day of trouble. Let us trust Him, for He never comes
late. His promise never to leave or forsake us is ever

Thought For The Day: “. ..I will never leave thee, nor
forsake thee.”

Bible Reading in a Year: Exodus 36-38.
