Joy and sorrow


Sorrow is one of the things that are lent, not given. Joy is given; sorrow is only lent. Sorrow is lent to us for just a little while that we might use if for eternal purposes. Then it will be taken away and everlasting joy will be our Father’s gift to us. So let us use this lent thing to draw us nearer to Christ; and let us use it to make us more tender to others.
