Our Tears

“The sea is nothing but a library of all the tears in history” (Lemony Snicket). Each tear is written in a language that cannot be expressed in words. And every salty tear meandering into the sea is a cry for answers and a plea for help. Our bitter tears gush from many sources: From sorrow and pain, hate and hurt, betrayal and disappointment, rejection and loss, regret and failure. But it’s assuring that there’s One who has experienced our tears, who knows and keeps count of our individual tears, and who will soon bring all tears to an end (Hebrews 5:7; Psalm 56:8; Revelation 21:4). Until then, let each tear around us initiate the zeal to relieve or remove its cause, lest others drown in the flow of despised tears.—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
