This is part of the series People in the Bible Who Lost a Child. In this episode, we are going to look at two dads, who had their children returned to them while still on this earth; Jacob in the Old Testament, and Jairus in the New Testament.
It would be easy for us to compare the fact that we didn’t get to have our children back and be bitter or angry about it. But that would prevent us from seeing there are things we can discover in these two families that will help us in our own deep loss and grief.
God has the final word on everything. Even when it seems like God has lost control, it isn’t true. Death is not the end, it is a door to the next life, and we will only be separated from our children for a short time, compared to eternity.
