Many times in our lives we face disappointment. Whether it is caused by work, a family member, a friend, or even an action you did or didn’t take, disappointments are hard to get passed sometimes. Today we look at Martha and Mary’s disappointment when Jesus was not there to save their brother, Lazarus, before he died.
‘Therefore, when Mary came where Jesus was, she saw Him, and fell at His feet, saying to Him, “Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died.” When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her also weeping, He was deeply moved in spirit and was troubled, and said, “Where have you laid him?” They *said to Him, “Lord, come and see.” Jesus wept. So the Jews were saying, “See how He loved him!” But some of them said, “Could not this man, who opened the eyes of the blind man, have kept this man also from dying?” Then the Jews who were with her in the house, and consoling her, when they saw that Mary got up quickly and went out, they followed her, supposing that she was going to the tomb to weep there. Now Jesus had not yet come into the village, but was still in the place where Martha met Him.’ –John 11:30-37
