Sow in Tears

Those who sow in tears will reap with songs 
of joy. He who goes out weeping, carrying
seed to sow, will return with songs of joy,
carry sheaves with him. Ps 126:5,6

None who loves the Lord does not weep. Weep
with sympathy for sinners, weep with desire for
the glory of God, and weep with eagerness to 
overcome the enemy. Of course, those who have
no heart to please the Lord do not have such ex-
perience. But all whose hearts on the Lord's work
are bound to weep. 

Without a doubt tears are something we must have,
because this world is in great need of much tears 
by which to wash her. Many young believers need
to be nurtured and disciplined with tears. Spiritual
life needs to be maintained with tears. Numerous
sinners need to have the seed of the gospel sown in
their hearts with tears. 

If we shed tears for the work, what will be the out-
come? Do be aware of this, that tears will not be
shed forever, because there is a time for it to cease.
For please note this verse: "Thus saith Jehovah: 
Refrain they voice from weeping, and thine eyes
from tears; for thy work shall be rewarded, saith
Jehovah; and they shall come again from the land 
of the enemy" (Jer 31:16) Watchman Nee

Reader, turn your sorrowing tears into a plea to the
Lord for men and women to be saved. He will save
those tears to pour out upon the hurting sinners, for
He would have none to perish.
