Better to Have Loved

"Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted" ~Matthew 5:4. 

Why? Why would those who mourn be blessed?  Because mourning is a result of having loved.

If we've never mourned, it means either we have never lost something we loved, or we have never loved something we lost.  The old cliche "it's better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all" rings true!

We can risk loving, we can even risk losing because we know the promise God has given us. "He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away." ~Revelation 21:4
