Have your kids lost someone?

Posted on 5/15/2016 by Greg Yoder

One of the most difficult things to see is your child grieving the death of somebody close to them—a friend or relative. It’s difficult for us adults, let alone kids. What do we say to them? How do we help them cope? The most important thing is to remind our kids that God is in control. Secondly, if the person who dies was a Christian, you can explain to them that they were immediately in the presence of God and, if they know Christ, they’ll see them again. The fact that these important people are missing makes it difficult. We need to tell our kids that it’s okay to grieve. After all, that’s why Lamentations was written, right? But, as Christians, we have hope, knowing God is the ultimate Healer.
