Till Death Do Us Part

Burial

According to www.ecology.com, about 1 million people die each week, worldwide. This week one of my co-workers was in that number.

He was in his 20s, and died from injuries sustained in an automobile accident. What began as a normal day ended suddenly and tragically. It was one of those things that shouldn’t happen, especially to a young person.

I repeatedly find myself thinking about his widow and young child; how they will cope and survive the sudden loss of husband and father. It will be challenging. They live in Mexico, and my colleague was not highly paid; his career was just getting started. Financially, things will be difficult.

A donation page was created for people to contribute and help with the cost of final arrangements. If you choose, you can contribute here:

There are many other opportunities on that website. You can see the list here:

There are other crowd-funding sites where people ask for financial help too. Some requests are for trivial scenarios and some are dire situations.

Not to put a guilt-trip on anyone but…

“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” James 1:27

Financial assistance is not peoples most important need but it is sometimes the most urgent one on their minds.

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”  Isaiah 9:6

May the Spirit of God bring peace to all who are suffering today. And may we take the opportunity to co-labor with Him, to ease their suffering and offer hope.

  1. Wow…sorry about your young co-worker. Life is fragile.

    Twice this week, and earlier this morning, read the verse in James, wrote in my journal…interesting when the Holy Spirit prompts us and friends close to us to the same truths!

    Also there was a comment, I think by Spurgeon, about collaboration – co-labor-ation…it is a pleasure to walk this life in Jesus Christ with you!
