But now he is dead; why should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.
2 Samuel 12:23
Luke 8:49-56 [ http://iz3.me/JmTT1z3Fe1A1 ]
The death of children is one of earth’s greatest sorrows. Throughout much of history and in much of the world today, childhood mortality figures are astoundingly high. Some reading these words have lost a child or a grandchild, either through illness or accident. Some have lost preborn children through miscarriage or abortion.

God loves children. He loves the preborn and He loves the newborn. He loves the infant and He loves the toddler. “Jesus loves the little children of the world — red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in His sight.” He is not willing for children to be lost. David said about his child who died: “I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.” Our few moments on earth are like the pop of a flashbulb compared to eternity. Be comforted: Our separation is short; our reunion is eternal.
Those little children have not yet any understanding to desire His blessing; but when they are presented to Him, He gently and kindly receives them, and dedicates them to the Father by a solemn act of blessing.
Deuteronomy 20-22 [
