The Difference Between Worldly and Godly Sorrow

text size A A A

How is worldly sorrow different from godly sorrow?

Don Hart explains in this video that every person has experienced worldly sorrow, but only Christians have experienced godly sorrow.

Worldly sorrow involves regret or remorse over committing sin, but there is no sorrow for grieving a holy God. Worldly sorrow does not involve sorrow over the sin itself – rather, it involves sorrow or sadness over the earthly consequences of the sin.

2 Corinthians 7:10 (NKJV) – “For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death.”
