2 Samuel 12:23
"Now that he has died, why should I fast? Can I bring him back? I will go to him, but he will not return to me."
David showed a very balanced viewpoint of mourning in 2 Samuel chapter 12:23 when his newborn son had died. He was naturally upset by this death, but he knew there was nothing he could do about it. When we lose people in death, it is completely natural to grieve. But this account reminds us that we should not be overcome by grief, but rather remember even though we can't do anything about their death, Jehovah can.
