Title: NEED FOR MORAL INTEGRITY


1
The Beattitudes
THE MIND OF CHRIST
Blessed are they that mourn
Sept 2, 2007 1030 a.m.
2
Puzzling? Ecc 72-4
  • Eccl 72-4 2 It is better to go to a house of
    mourning Than to go to a house of feasting,
    Because that is the end of every man, And the
    living takes it to heart.
  • 3 Sorrow is better than laughter,
  • For when a face is sad a heart may be happy. 4
    The mind of the wise is in the house of mourning,
    While the mind of fools is in the house of
    pleasure. NASU

3
The Beattitudes
THE MIND OF CHRIST
Blessed are . . . mourn for they shall be
comforted.
4
Not all mourning is blessed
  • Mourn (Grieve) Blessing
  • Moan (Complain) Unblessed

5
Reversed Beattitude
  • How unfortunate are those who moan and complain
  • for they shall be continually frustrated.

6
Thesis
Examples of Unblessed mourning
The Type that is Blessed
How can I experience true mourning?
7
Unblessed Moaning
  • Cynical and negative moaning
  • Ecc 118-9 All things are wearisome Man is
    not able to tell it. The eye is not satisfied
    with seeing, Nor is the ear filled with hearing.
    9 That which has been is that which will be, And
    that which has been done is that which will be
    done. So there is nothing new under the sun.
    NASU

8
Unfair Treatment
  • Luke 1213 Someone in the crowd said to Him,
    "Teacher, tell my brother to divide the family
    inheritance with me." 14 But He said to him, "
    Man, who appointed Me a judge or arbitrator over
    you?" NASU

9
Not getting credit or moan over anothers good
fortune
  • Luke 1529-32 "But he answered and said to his
    father, 'Look! For so many years I have been
    serving you and I have never neglected a command
    of yours and yet you have never given me a young
    goat, so that I might celebrate with my friends
    30 but when this son of yours came, who has
    devoured your wealth with prostitutes, you killed
    the fattened calf for him.' NASU

10
Moaning over Adversity
  • Num 111 Now the people became like those who
    complain of adversity in the hearing of the LORD
    and when the LORD heard it, His anger was
    kindled,
  • and the fire of the LORD burned among them NASU

11
Moaning over FOOD
  • Num 214-5 5 The people spoke against God and
    Moses, " Why have you brought us up out of Egypt
    to die in the wilderness? For there is no food
    and no water, and we loathe this miserable food."
    NASU

12
Kibroth-hattaavah Graves of lust
  • 4 The rabble who were among them had greedy
    desires and also the sons of Israel wept again
    and said, " Who will give us meat to eat? 5 " We
    remember the fish which we used to eat free in
    Egypt, the cucumbers and the melons and the leeks
    and the onions and the garlic, 6 but now our
    appetite is gone. There is nothing at all to look
    at except this manna." NASU
  • Num 1133 While the meat was still between
    their teeth, before it was chewed, the anger of
    the LORD was kindled against the people, and the
    LORD struck the people with a very severe plague.
    NASU

13
Why is Moaning so Bad?
  • IT IS ALWAYS SELF-CENTERED!

What is Blessed Mourning?
14
God-Centered!
  • Gk Lit. Grief Stricken.
  • True Mourning has Therapeutic Value
  • Spankings done right
  • Adults mourning loss
  • Mother nature!

The Blessing of Mourning is very real
15
Blessed Mourning Sin!
Godly sorrow mourning
  • No Godly Sorrow no Hope!
  • 2 Cor 710-11 For the sorrow that is according
    to the will of God produces a repentance without
    regret, leading to salvation, but the sorrow of
    the world produces death. NASU

Blessing
moaning
16
David was in miserable in sin
  • As long as I did not confess my sins my bones
    dried up within me.
  • Finally to Nathan I have sinned.
  • As long as he refused to mourn, in agonyno
    comfort!

17
David blessed in mourning
  • Ps 512-4 Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity And
    cleanse me from my sin. 3 For I know my
    transgressions, And my sin is ever before me. 4
    Against You, You only, I have sinned And done
    what is evil in Your sight,
  • Ps 5117 The sacrifices of God are a broken
    spirit A broken and a contrite heart, O God,
    You will not despise. NASU
  • The joy of his salvation is renewed through this
    catharsis of spirit. (Ps 51 12)

18
How Can I Be Brought to Mourning?
  • QUIT MOANING!
  • Direct Confrontation with the word of God.
  • Heb 412-13 12 For the word of God is living
    and active and sharper than any two-edged sword,
    and piercing .. able to judge the thoughts and
    intentions of the heart. 13 . . .all things are
    open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom
    we have to do. NASU

19
Four Steps to Mental Health
