2 Corinthians 7:10

"For Godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death." ESV

Grief over a sin, a wrongdoing, is a normal human emotion. However, there is a huge difference in our source of grief. Some people grieve and feel guilty over the fact that they were caught or found out and now they are in trouble. This kind of grief is worldly and lacks moral character. It only makes a person seek different ways to get by with secret sins to keep from getting caught. The sinful heart remains and results in spiritual death. Godly grief, on the other hand, is a grief that brings humility from having sinned against our God and fellowman. We are grieved that we have gone against our Lord. The burden of that guilt leads us to turn away from ever doing that wrong again. It helps us mature and keeps us on the eternal path to God.

Heavenly Father, search our hearts so that we will know where our grief comes from. Give us hearts of Godly grief, the awareness that our sins are against You and give us faith and spiritual strength to repent. We pray in Jesus' name, Amen.
