It’s impossible to fully define grief, but I think it’s fair to say that it’s cruel. It puts us in a state that makes us think and say things that are out of character.

The Lord gave me this insight on Job’s wife:

It’s especially rough when people criticize or judge us for our behavior when we’re suffering. Yes, we have to be careful about the things we say, but we also need people who won’t be offended by our grief.

The epitome of grace is to love someone when they suffer and to allow them to grieve.
