Moleskin – The Power of Grieving
In Judges 11, Jephthah made a vow to the Lord in exchange for victory against the Ammonites. He promised to offer as a burnt offering the first thing that came out of his house to greet him upon returning home. When he returned home, the it was his daughter.
When his daughter learned what had happened, she told her father to do as he promised, but first to grant her 2 months to road the hills and weep with her friends. After weeping for 2 months, she returned and was killed. This became a tradition for the women of Israel.
Not only is it important to grieve our own losses, but it is important to grieve with those that we love when they experience loss.
