Matthew Henry:
Though no man lays it to heart when the righteous perish, God will make it to appear that He lays it to heart.
This should make us willing to die, to die for Christ, if we are called to it, that our death shall be registered in heaven, and let that be precious to us which is so to God.

Another link is broken
In our household band
But a chain is forming
In a better land

2 Cor 4:17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.

1 Cor 15:36-44
36 ...that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die: 
37 And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain
38 But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body. 
39 All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind offlesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. 
40 There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.
41 There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.
42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: 
43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: 
44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
