Do you ever feel sad? What helps you feel better when you are sad?
A woman named Rizpah lived long ago during the time of King David. But Rizpah was very, very sad because her sons died and she missed them very much. And so instead of ignoring or trying to hide her pain, she cried and showed her sadness to others in her town. King David found out that Rizpah was sad, and so he decided to help give her sons a proper funeral. It’s ok to feel sad sometimes. When we are feeling sad, God is with us and God loves us. And God wants us to take care of each other so that we are never alone when we are hurting.
