Sorrow Of The World Produces Death

“For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death” (2 Cor. 7:10).

People think regret is a good thing. Of course, you shouldn’t feel good about the bad things you did. This verse makes it clear that there is a kind of sorrow that produces repentance without regret, leading to salvation. The worldly sorrow produces death. However, with godly sorrow, there’s some regret initially, but it doesn’t last forever. Obviously, it’s not going to last forever because God is going to wipe every tear from our eyes when we get to heaven. So, regret is not God’s long term will for you. You can apply the full manifestation of some of the inheritance that God has for us. God wants you to move on with the life He has given you no matter what has happened in the past.

Are you dealing with the loss of a loved one? This is something that there’s no escape from unless you go to heaven first. The longer you live, it is more likely that you will know people who will pass away, and you might even regret that you didn’t love them enough or show your love as much as you should. There are all kinds of things that you might think you should have, or could have, or even would have. People are defensive and I’m not here to say that you shouldn’t have a process to go through, but it shouldn’t last forever. Jesus wants us to be happy. He wants us to be filled with joy, and that’s why He comforts us when we mourn. He wraps His love around us. He said “blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted” (Mat. 5:4). Jesus wants us to move on in life.
