We will explore "comfort" and to whom God promises comfort.
Why does God compare His comfort to that of a mother?
I have a personal & current illustration as my mother has comforted me as a child, now I offer her comfort from God's assurances in His Word. Strange how this cycle reverses itself, from Mother-child to Child-Mother ... or generically, from Parent-child to Child-parent.
God says, "I will comfort you" -- to whom is He looking, what people is the focus of His favor & comfort? What does this promise mean to us today?
The bigger question for some, "Am I in the 'you' group?"
