What were some of the cheering words He said to them?

 

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, trust also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you, I am going there to prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.” John 14:1-3.

Why and for what may every child of God rejoice?

 

“I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with jewels.” Isaiah 61:10.

1 Corinthians 10:10.

 

Rejoicing Always

What respect should be shown the aged?

Note – Genuine Christian courtesy is the outgrowth of love, and manifests itself in thoughtful consideration for others.
