A parent should never have to bury a child. This is a sad text and the terrible link is that God has caused an affliction upon David's son because of his sin against Uriah and Bathsheba.
I have been with parents as they grieve the loss of a child, it is gut wrenching. This is the portrait of a man that we see here.
Have you ever grieved so hard that it became difficult to go on living?
Lord, speak into the lives of those that have buried their children, bring comfort in their mourning.
