McCheyne’s Bible Reading Plan: Ex 19, Lk 22, Job 37, 2 Co 7
For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death. (2 Co 7:10)
There are times when we will grieve and they call us to discern their nature. Is it godly grief or worldly grief? The answer is revealed in what that grief produces. One produces repentance, the other death. Logic would also teach us some other differences. Worldly grief is more grieved over the consequences of the sin that brought the grief. Godly grief is grieved over the sin and it’s offense against God.
