Today’s Reading: Philippians 4:6–7, 1 Corinthians 6:19, Psalm 139:13, 16 – Version NIV
It is not easy to determine why people commit suicide. We only know that the statistics indicate, despite their imprecision, that the suicide rate has risen alarmingly; especially among youth and children.

For example, according to the World Health Organization, in some countries, seventeen of every thousand people commit suicide.

Why? Is it because they feel lonely and sad in the midst of so many people; in a crowd? Is it that they feel nobody loves them? Why don’t they love others?

What happens to those people who end their lives? Will that unhappiness be so great that is not worth living?

Not easy to find an answer. Losing hope, give up the struggle for life, it can also be a slow and gradual suicide.

To fill the gap and regain hope God must be followed. Only then will we find the strength to give new meaning to life.

If you already experienced everything and nothing satisfies you, try Jesus. Only Jesus can give you back the joy of living.
