“The funeral sermon is one of the most difficult sermons to prepare and deliver. To begin with, there is an emotional strain which is felt by preacher and hearers alike. Jesus was ever and anon saying: “I have compassion.” He felt other people’s sorrows. He made their burdens His own. When He stood with the bereaved family in Bethany, hard by the grave of Lazarus, He wept. If we do not feel other people’s sorrows, if their burdens do not become in some measure our own, we are not ministers after Jesus' heart, and we can never render our best service. A true ministry is a sacrificial ministry. This is costly business. It wears at the very source of life. But any true minister is willing, glad to pay the price.” — Robert Golladay
