Luke 7: 13 ” When the Lord saw her, His heart went out to her and He said, ‘Don’t cry.’ “

Jesus and His Disciples were traveling to a town called Nain, when they came upon a funeral procession of the only son of a widow.  Jesus looked on her with compassion, for  she had not only lost her only boy, but also  her sole means of income.  This tenderness towards the woman was prompted  perhaps  by Jesus remembering His own mother and what she soon would be going through.  For Jesus then  spoke  to the corpse , “Get up!” and the young man sat up and Jesus gave him back to his mother.
