Death produces sorrow worldly
2ND CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 7 ONE THRU FOUR
5 For even when we came into Macedonia, our flesh had no rest, but we were afflicted in every way—external conflicts, internal fears. 6 But God, who encourages the downcast, encouraged us by the arrival of Titus, 7 and not only by his arrival but also by the encouragement with which he was encouraged in regard to you, as he told us of your yearning, your lament, your zeal for me, so that I rejoiced even more. 8 For even if I saddened you by my letter, I do not regret it; and if I did regret it ([for] I see that that letter saddened you, if only for a while), 9 I rejoice now, not because you were saddened, but because you were saddened into repentance; for you were saddened in a godly way, so that you did not suffer loss in anything because of us. 10 For godly sorrow produces a salutary repentance without regret, but worldly sorrow produces death.
Sometimes when our elders or good friends chastise us we learned a valuable lesson in humility because we are representing not sadness or death we are surrendered to repentance where we rejoice openly not willing to deny our Jesus in the corner of the dark or the light. You will find this type of afflicted being a lover of Christ where each infirmity internally and externally exhibits fears running rampant across the heart that beats sorrow in the reaction of those who breathe no more.
Be encouraged as the arrival of a good friend who seems to lift those up around them just by the way they talk to you or share the love of God in such simple where we find zeal for the lasting love Jesus gave all who confessed him to be the one and only Messiah. Rejoice being not sad of your repentance but in an unselfish godly call on he who eliminated sin from those joining the cause by our Father in heaven who gave as the One and only True God to those who make him habitual oozing Love. Amen.
Join us in our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and Rose for me. Prayer intentions. Happy 77th birthday to my mom. IN Jesus Name. Amen.

**2nd Corinthians 7 Five thru Ten**
**Death produces sorrow worldly**
Rest none flesh ours
Macedonia way affliction scars
Fears internal conflicts external
Downcast encouraged God guards
Titus arrival imparted Spirit
Inspiration God never bars
Paul told yearning yours
Rejoicing zeal yearning Heaven’s stars
Letter saddened regret not
Short time offended repentance now
Way Godly suffer not
Salutary love sorrow Godly
Death produces sorrow worldly
