The bodies and bones of the dead are to be treated with respect. Treating the dead with disrespect is the equivalent of treating the living judgmentally; both presume God’s role as Judge.
Bible History (informative, historical, allegorical)
Do you ever get discouraged in your efforts at reaching out to others with the gospel message? Does it seem like we are teaching hearts of stone that have no interest in God’s gracious offer of a new life? Learn to accept the fact that some doors are closed, and that is God’s will
“The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones.” (William Shakespeare)
