For the Lord your God is a merciful God; He will not abandon or destroy you or forget the covenant with your forefathers, which he confirmed to them by oath.
Earlier this week, a young man from our small town here in Michigan committed suicide. He was only 28 years old and had been married for just over a year. He had a good job and seemed to have it all together. I knew this young man from my previous job. We had associations with him and his dad. Although I did not know him and his family socially, I have been deeply affected by his suicide.
What makes a young man think that it is better to die than to live? What does Satan put into a young man’s mind to get him to commit suicide?
How do you console someone who has lost a family member to suicide? I ask because I really do not know. I feel so badly for the family. What must they be going through? It is one thing to lose a child, but to suicide?
Romans 8:28 says “All things work for the good of those who love God.” Hopefully some kind of good can come from this.
