As he approached the town gate, a dead person was being carried out – the only son of his mother, and she was a widow … When the Lord saw her, his heart went out to her and he said, “Don’t cry.”

Luke 7:12-13

What a great heart of love the Lord had. This very sad widow had buried her husband and now she was about to bury her only son. No wonder she cried.

The Lord’s heart went out to her, isn’t that amazing, the very heart of the God of heaven was touched by this emotion. Soon her sadness was turned to inexplicable joy. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. He knows all about you, so don’t cry.
