Sorrow: When I'm not voting for my question at the Mars Hill vote-a-thon I've been getting lots done lately. One of my renewed passions is preparing my messages for Sunday. As a compliment ot my messages in 1 Corinthians I'm reading 2 Corinthians for my personal growth. I continued to be blown away by the words of Paul.

2 Corinthians 7 starting at verse 8. My paraphrase.

At first I regretted that I heard my letter caused you sorrow but now I'm happy. You were made sorry and your sorrow led to repentance. Godly sorry brings repentance but worldly sorry brings death. This godly sorry has produced in you; earnestness, eagerness to clear yourselves, indignation, alarm, longing, concern and readiness to see justice done.
