Sermon: “Godly Grief” from Dan Mitchum

Dan Mitchum - April 28, 2024

Godly Grief

“Good grief!” is what Charlie Brown laments when crestfallen or dismayed. But is there such a thing as good grief? The Bible says there is—but it calls it “godly grief.” Second Corinthians 7:10 says, “For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, but worldly grief produces death.” Tomorrow, we’ll return to our new study in the book of Micah. God’s warning spoken through Micah is shocking in its severity. And how does Micah respond? Does he gloat because God is finally threatening to judge His people after centuries of rebellion? No, Micah does something entirely different. He grieves—not for himself, but for his friends, neighbors, and those in the nation he loved. And Micah longs for his people to be filled with godly grief—a grief that leads to repentance and salvation. When we look at our culture today, do we grieve like Micah?
