Mary wept because the Lord was no longer in the tomb. Instead, she should have wept if He had been there. Had He remained in the grave, we would have been without a Saviour. Does it not show that we often weep senselessly? Jacob said, "All these things are against me" (Genesis 42:36), when in reality they were working together for the most wonderful blessings. Mary's unbelief was responsible for her tears. Had not the Lord told her and the others repeatedly that He was to rise from the dead the third day? Oh, how much sorrow we bring upon ourselves because we do not believe His word.
