The memory of the righteous will be a blessing
For he who is least among you all will be great.
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.”
Be on your guard: stand firm in the faith: be men of courage: be strong.
(I Corinthians 16:13)
Give Honor and respect to all those to whom it is due.
Remember the days of old; consider the generations long past. Ask you father and he will tell you, your elders and they will explain to you.
The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.
Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.
(I Thessalonians 4:13-14)
No one has greater love than this – that one would lay down his life for his friends.
