A Truly Christian Funeral by Monty Williams

 

Monty Williams, former NBA player, now coaching for the Oklahoma City Thunder lost his wife due to a car accident with another car.

His response, as exhibited by the eulogy given at his late wife’s funeral, is so inspirationally Christian.

The way he responds with acceptance, love, proclamation of truth, eternal perspective, and commitment to forgiveness reminds me so much of the teachings of Jesus that I can’t help but share it.

This is a reminder that is it with love and forgiveness that we interact with our neighbors here on earth. And that this is the witness to the world that God is love.
