In his second Beatitude for Kingdom living, Jesus said “Blessed,” that is joyful, happy, “are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” So when we are sad, we can be so happy? How can that be? Well, there are some things—actually, some of life’s most important things—that we can only learn through the kind of pain that brings mourning, and the experience of being comforted in our mourning. And what we will find as this Beatitude unfolds is that best comfort is that which comes from God himself, for he is close to the brokenhearted.
