Are you feeling sorry today? Godly sorrow leads to repentance. Hmm. It is one thing to feel sorry, but another to actually want to do something about it.
I hear a lot of ”sorry” but seldom see change. It is sorrow for getting caught. That is worldly sorrow. But worldly sorrow only lasts as long as the consequences do. Once the sentence has been served, the sorrow is gone, and it’s back to business.
But godly sorrow means change. It means making it right what you did wrong. It means wanting to restore relationships and trust. It means real soul healing. Always desire godly sorrow when sin catches up with you.
Heavenly Father, I know I am not a good man. I never have been. But if you have some use for me, I pray for forgiveness. Help me to be better, for myself and those around me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
