The warnings for sin have gone out since man was first made. Sin is death. When you have committed sin there will be consequences to follow.
Such consequences as Sin rears up will often charge you with horrifying and utterly devastating sadness. Eventually, hopefully in this life, you will cry great tears of sadness for the things you have done.
But when you cry because you have broken life’s rule, do not expect others to give you a loving embrace. You have no right to expect them to cry with you. Those tears belong to you. They are not tears of suffering for the name of Christ. They are not tears a man may cry when unjustly persecuted. They are tears that you have brought death upon yourself.
Face reality. Seek strength. Strive to understand. All the while, get up on your shaky legs and start walking.
The Lord loves mercy, yes. But mercy comes in a variety of forms. Our need may not be as we perceive it.
