The trials of this life are a reminder that Earth is not our home. 2 Corinthians 4:18, While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. Our small community recently lost people to a tragic event and we try to explain why do these things happen. The Bible says, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. Reach out to people that are hurting and remind them of the promises God has given us.
He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it. And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation. Isaiah 25:8-12
