Enlarging Your Soul Through Grief and Loss

Ecclesiastes 3:1,4 / May 28, 2017

Many Christians have been taught that the unpleasant emotions, like sadness, anger, and anxiety are “bad,” while the more pleasant emotions, such as happiness, are “good.” In this sermon, we see from Scripture that this is not only wrong, but unhealthy. God made us to feel the full range of human emotions, including unpleasant ones like grief. In fact, God can enlarge our soul in grief in a way that happiness cannot.
