“Have I not wept for the unfortunate? Was not my soul grieved for the poor?”

Job 30:25

Do you grieve?

Do you grieve for the brokenhearted, for broken marriages, and broken friendships?

Do you grieve for the oppressed, the disadvantaged, and the disenfranchised?

Do you grieve for the hungry, the sick, and the terminally ill?

Do you grieve for those who reject the Gospel and for those who have never heard it?

Do you grieve for those who die in their sin?

Do you grieve for the loss of innocent life— the child in the womb, the youth, or the elderly?

Do you grieve when those with whom you disagree are harmed, injured, or killed?

Do you grieve for those who look, sound, and think different from you?

Do you grieve for the persecuted and the persecutor? Do you grieve for the wickedness that is filling the earth?

Do you grieve for the law enforcer and the law breaker?

Do you grieve?

“So God created humankind in his own image; in the image of God he created him: male and female he created them” (Genesis 1:27) and “it is not his purpose that anyone should be destroyed, but that everyone should turn from his sins” (2 Peter 3:9b).
