Many a Tear Has to Fall
It's been quite some time since I last posted an article on Personapaper. I wouldn't be doing it now, but... well, something hit me hard.
I've been writing people letters on scriptural topics, ever since the pandemic began. I write on a host of topics. But one scripture I use, Ecclesiastes, did a flip-side on me. Chapter 1, verse 4 reads:
"A generation is going, and a generation is coming, But the earth remains forever."
Repeatedly, I've used this scripture to point out that our planet, Earth, will always be here, contrary to what some scientists believe. But take another look at that verse.
"A generation is going, and a generation is coming". How true that is. But think, think. Oh, think of the implication... HOW MANY TEARS have been shed over, not only the sufferings of this life, but over the lost of dear loved ones and friends. Many, many billions of tears.
How wonderful it will be when things are changed and this promise is fulfilled:
"The righteous will possess the earth, And they will live forever on it."
One day, soon, there will be no more tears cried, ever again, unless they be tears of joy.
