Matthew 10:20 lets us know that God can speak through his children, but even then, it wouldn’t hurt to make a few preparations before speaking at a funeral. It is not easy to speak in times of grief, loss and pain. Saying the wrong thing can lead to anger, as everyone’s emotions are high. Even as a Christian, it’s not surprising to find yourself struggling.
It can be even harder to speak when you are also affected by the loss. Your main goals are to be strong for everyone, give everyone a supportive and hopeful message, and share God’s love.
