God is God of the living
Every culture has multiple euphemisms for death. One religious example is to say that someone is “with God.”
This kind of euphemism has its place since death is never easy to cope with, and news of death is difficult to convey. It is also the reality that we do not know God fully in this life.
Yet, Jesus assures us, “God is not God of the dead, but of the living.”
I already belong to God in this life. So are my neighbors.
How does this reality that Jesus teaches us guide the way I live my earthly life? How does it shape the way I treat others?
