Blessed Are Those Who Mourn

“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” – Matthew 5:4

We should not glamorize sin.  We should normalize sin. We should not trivialize sin.  Instead, we should agonize over sin because of its offensiveness to God and the brokenness that it causes for us.   Sin is always a big deal because it immediately displeases a big God and eventually leads to big problems for us.  Our society doesn’t lament sin; it laughs if off.  But God takes sin so seriously that He sent Jesus to be crushed on the cross to conquer it so we could be comforted in spite of it.  When we see and treat sin like God intends, something wonderful happens:  He turns our tears of sadness over sin into tears of gladness over grace.
