Explaining Death to a child

How can we effectively explain death to a child? They see things much differenmtly than we do. I found this excerpt, very helpful, from the book by  Billy Graham  – Death and The Life After , from the experience of Dr. Donald Grey Barnhouse, a minister of the Gospel, who himself had to explain the death of his wife to his daughter:


Scripture reminds us that Jesus took the sting of death for us – when we trust in Him for salvation, only the ‘shadow’ of death affects us…

Stay blessed and anchored in Jesus,

Pr. Paddick van Zyl
