Explain Ezekiel’s emotional state knowing that God took his wife--his joy and delight--in order to make a point to the people.
“Son of man, with one blow I will take away your dearest treasure (the delight of your eyes). Yet you must not show any sorrow at her death. Do not weep; let there be no tears. 17 Groan silently, but let there be no wailing at her grave…” (Ezekiel 24:16-17a, NLT).
