10 Bible Verses About Suicide That Prove You’re Not Alone

bible suicide scripture quote - 10 Bible Verses About Suicide That Prove You're Not Alone

Don’t give up hope. You’re here for a reason.

Suicide awareness has grown since 13 Reasons Why.

Then when Anthony Boudain and Kate Spade claimed their own lives in 2018, the topic became more openly discussed on social media to promote awareness and to show support for individuals suffering from depression.

The numbers prove that more people feel hopeless than ever before.

World stress factors, social media, and an inability to escape life due to the world’s interconnection can make it seem like a 21st-century problem.

But, did you know that the Bible also talks about suicide, starting from the beginning of the Bible via the Book of Genesis?

The first couple in the Bible gave birth to two brothers: Cain and Abel.

Able was murdered out of jealousy by his brother. As a result, Cain was sent out from his family and his biggest fear was that others would try to do to him what he had done to his brother.

This is the first conversation where desperate fear could indicate that a person struggled with thoughts of suicide.

Instead, God told Cain that he would mark him in such a way that anyone who harmed him would also be harmed as well.

Instead of judging Cain for his emotional angst, he was giving support, a lifeline, to encourage him to face another day.

There are other stories in the Bible about suicidal thoughts and attempts. King David contemplated suicide when his son was found dead.

In the New Testament, Judas hung himself out of guilt for leading Christ to his captors for money.

King Saul killed himself after a long period of mental illness. King David’s advisor, Ahithophel, also claimed his own life.

When Ahithophel saw that his advice had not been followed, he saddled his donkey and set out for his house in his hometown. He put his house in order and then hanged himself. So he died and was buried in his father’s tomb. Samuel 17:23, (WEB)

Samson’s death could be ruled a suicide or a martyr act.

There are many places where scriptures show how people felt sad and hopeless.

As a result, they gave in to their overwhelming sorrow and took their own life.

There are many factors that come into a person’s decision on why they should do this, but let’s take a look at one of them, lack of meaning.

It’s OK to be sad.

Positive thinking is important to have in your life, but it’s nearly impossible to always be happy and in a good mood.

We’re all human and sometimes life can seem overwhelming. Some days you might feel like you’re on top of the world, while other days you feel like your world is crashing down around you.

If you feel like you want to find someone and fall in love, put yourself out there and eventually the right person will come along. Love doesn’t happen overnight, so be sure to be patient and not expect to find the love of your life right away.
