“Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted.”

I’m so glad to hear that. I do mourn, and it’s nice to know that I will be comforted. Not here, I know that. Here is not a possibility, but my reward will be great in heaven. I have that to look forward to.

And it’s not just me. All who mourn will be comforted, maybe not here, but their reward will be great in heaven. All those who hunger for righteousness will get it. Not here necessarily, but in the next world. All who are merciful and pure here, even if their mercy is not returned here, will be with God in the hereafter. All of us who suffer here will get our comfort. We can all rejoice and be glad, because our reward will be great in heaven.
