Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death.

– 2 Corinthians 7:10 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

One of the great differences between godly sorrow and worldly sorrow is regret. Are we sorry for what we did, but we really wish that we could do that again? If so, you’ve not been gripped by the pain that your sin has brought to the heart of God and those around you. Godly sorrow has no regret of what has to happen in order to walk in a new way. Worldly sorrow is only aware of the pain and consequences of being caught and wants to do the bare minimum to get by. How about us? Are we living more by godly sorrow or worldly sorrow?
