2. Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted

A Call to compassion – to mourn with others.

When we mourn there is no virtue or goodness to be found in crying in and of itself. It’s when we cry (as a response to compassion) for something or for someone that it takes on meaning.

Some things to consider;

  • Do we cry for the sake of sins?
  • Do we cry for the sake of those who don’t know Jesus?
  • Do we willingly accept suffering from God?
  • Are we willing to be without material goods and accept that lack?
  • Are we moved by the material plight of another?
  • Are we greedy and unable to see the needs of someone else and feel their pain?

It is also a detachment from addiction to good ‘feelings’. 

Suffering is good, if we allow it to be – Christ’s suffering is the reason we have salvation

Although we cannot take away another’s suffering – we can accompany them 

This is linked with 7th commandment thou shall not steal. Those who mourn and willingly suffer and do not inordinately desire earthly goods.
