Series Tearful Expressions

What do you see in tears? Some see weakness. Some see manipulation. Some see weakness. Still others see immaturity. What do you see in the tears of your spouse, your child, your friend – or your own? Most of us are somewhat uncomfortable with tears, crying – and out and out weeping and wailing. And yet, tears are often reported in Scripture – both human tears and the tears of God himself. By exploring a myriad of passages that reference tearful expressions, we grow as we gain understanding of God’s weeping Servants, God’s weeping Son and God’s weeping heart and how His connection with crying can deepen our understanding and relationship with Him.
