Matthew-5:4 Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are those who mourn, grieve, sob uncontrollably over the loss of their loving spouse of many years, over the loss of their only child, over the loss of their best friend, over the divorce they never saw coming, over the accident that surgery couldn't correct. They cry out, but there is nothing that can fill the void of an empty womb - again, nothing that can soothe the phantom pain where a leg once stood, that is not until today when they hear Jesus tell them that the day shall come - emphasis on the promise of SHALL - and that they SHALL be comforted.

The words are those of hope - then and today as well; words for strength & endurance, and more. They provide not only the comfort necessary for us to understand that a living, loving God cares for us, but His words also provide us with the necessary abundant love for those around us, to comfort others, for as freely as we receive, we can freely give - from His abundance...today.
