Never side with death

The young support group member said he could painlessly end his life when its quality was gone. Others wanted control and a merciful death once the known remedies had failed and they faced a seemingly certain, painful, or debilitating death process. Though grieving and preparing to die, they really wanted to live. Could hastening death be advantage? Merciful? Convenient? Nearest right? There weren't easy answers.

I yearned to share with them the living God's infinite, unconditional, tender love for all; the merciful, comforting ever-presence that never allows pain, that never condemns anyone. The understanding of God heals difficult conditions and makes hastening death unnecessary and undesirable! But sharing wasn't possible then.

We'd love to hear from you!
