1 Thessalonians 4:13
But I would not have you to be ignorant, brothers, concerning them which are asleep, that you sorrow not…
The Rev. J. Newton once said to a gentleman who had lately lost his daughter, "Sir, if you were going to the East Indies I suppose you would like to send a remittance before you. This little girl is just like a remittance sent to heaven before you yourself. I suppose a merchant in charge is never heard expressing himself thus: 'Oh, my dear ship, I am sorry she has got into port so soon! I am sorry she has escaped the storms that are coming!' Neither should we sorrow for children dying."
