Glenn Hohnberg looks to the Book of Proverbs to help us navigate the path of grief with those who are experiencing loss.

"'Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs him down,
but a good word makes him glad
.' (Proverbs 12:25)

Those going through grief and loss—for whatever reason—feel anxious. The world feels less stable, less safe. Anxiety becomes a weight that presses down on their shoulders and saps their strength. It can be a shadow that blocks the light of the gospel."
