The Wisdom of Mourning

It is better to go to the house of mourning
than to go to the house of feasting,
for this is the end of all mankind,
and the living will lay it to heart.
Ecclesiastes 7:2

It is better to mourn because it is the person who mourns who will act thoughtfully to spend his or her days wisely. Escape the fleeting pleasures of those around us and mourn! Mourn for your soul and the souls of others. You will find that the mourning was the seeds for the tender shoots of a life that made a difference.
