Comfort in Mourning (Mt. 5)

July 18, 2022

Blessed are those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.

Matthew 5:4

“Happy are the sad,” somebody said in an incorrect paraphrase of that verse.

One way to understand Matthew 5:4 is to review Matthew 5:3. Then the sadness here comes from admitting our poverty of spirit.

That kind of sorrow can lead to repentance.

Which means “change.”

St. Paul wrote that godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret. (2 Corinthians 7:10)

Your choice: happiness or regret.

Any changes you need to make today?
