Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:4 New International Version
Why would Jesus say we are blessed when we mourn?
Could it be that we mourn when we sin. This mourning causes us to repent and when we repent our sins are forgiven. When we repent of our sins God comforts us and we feel no guilt.
What does worldly sorrow mean?
Could it be I could have or should have but didnít? That ends up bringing death to their hearts. It is a slow painful death that gets worse the older we get.
I prefer Godly mourning as that brings me closer to Jesus which leads to a peaceful contented, joy filled life.
Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death. 2 Corinthians 7:10 New International Version
Prayer:Thank you Jehovah Ropheka (God our healer) for Your gracious forgiveness when I repent. It brings a peaceful, contented joy filled life as I am blessed with a close relationship with You. I give thanks in the name of the greatest healer Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sweet sunshine of Jesus' precious love bless you today and every day.
