Parcels from the Preacher: January 28, 2024

“Modern English speakers use the phrase “crocodile tears” to describe a display of superficial or false sorrow, but the saying actually derives from a medieval belief that crocodiles shed tears of sadness while they killed and consumed their prey”.

Just a thought, from a Biblical standpoint, this is an incredibly challenging concept. Superficial or false sorrow fill the pages of Scripture and God declares this unjust. True sorrow from sin brings repentance worthy of God’s forgiveness and Paul records in the seventh of Second Corinthians. Sorrowing over a false world brings forth the Second Death according to the twentieth of Revelation. Children have perpetually forged “crocodile tears” to avoid punishment with parents. This type of behavior is truly poor production and will not be a means of escape from the swift hand of God on Judgment Day. Think on these things.

Have the day you are meant to have in Christ alone,

Archie R. Green
