What is Godly sorrow all about? Why should I mourn?

What is Godly sorrow all about? Why should I mourn?

Jesus is ushering in the Kingdom of God. I like to think of Matthew 5 to 7 as his manifesto of what the Kingdom life is all about. This is the second of what is known as the Beatitudes. The Greek word for blessed is μακάριος (transliteration – makarios) It literally means happy or more than happy.

Happy are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.  | Matthew 5:4 (ESV)
