Breaking the Heart of God

broken heart

DAILY VERSE

The lord observed the extent of human wickedness on the earth, and he saw that everything they thought or imagined was consistently and totally evil. So the lord was sorry he had ever made them and put them on the earth. It broke his heart.

Genesis 6:5-6

DEVOTION

It may be convenient to fool ourselves into thinking that our failures and sins only affect us, but the truth is, they seriously grieve our Father in heaven. We were not created to be destroyers of self esteem and self worth, we were created to love and lift up. We were not created to covet possessions or strive to build up our own wealth, we were created to live frugally and give. God takes joy when we triumph, but he’s also saddened when we fail to live as he created us to live.
