Good luck to us Tamian. The teaching of Jesus contradicts the teaching of the world. This is what the world says: don't mourn - run away from sadness and anxiety and seek happiness. But Jesus says - in order to be truly happy, one must first mourn. What does Jesus mean when he says we should mourn? He means: we should mourn for our sins. He is talking about spiritual sorrow, not worldly sorrow. Before we can receive the joy of salvation, we must first mourn our sins. Such mourning leads to repentance. The sorrow that is for God is the source of repentance for the sake of salvation, for which there is no regret; But worldly sorrow is the source of death.
