It will be very interesting to see what the God Grief list will develop into.

Just type your own list as you see things in relation to how we cause God grief into our comment box and our list will be altered by most recent suggestions until someone suggest otherwise. Don’t worry that your list might not be the ultimate in your mind. The point of the top 10 list of what grieves God the most is to see all the variation of perceptions and how each suggestion cause others to expound and look deeper into what just might cause grief to God. All your comments will be viewable at all times but may not always stay in the Top 10 List. You can change just one, some or all. Be creative. Make people think. Or just type right off the top of your head. It’s all good.


Grievous Actions

We are sometimes so wrapped up in our own grief or pleasure that we don’t consider what might cause God Grief. How God might grieve about our actions towards our fellow mankind, towards Him, or even actions we take against ourselves. (smoking, drinking or eating toxic foods anyone?) God grief!

If we were to walk in Gods shoes for just a moment, we would never sin again because our perception would change immensely.

If we deliberately sin, God is not able to answer our prayers, nor even comfort us, due to the separation the sin creates, giving ourselves and God grief.

Discipline is the path at the crossroads that lead us down the road to recovering our own self respect lost in disobedience to God.

Everyone is born with the knowledge of right and wrong. It is only our self indulgent urges that over ride that innate desire to do right. As life progresses and that habit of self indulgence burrows deeper within our soul, we become distant from God, as looking toward Him would mean giving up our own greed of what we perceive to be rewarding. God Grief!

God Grief is where “good grief” was derived from many years ago. Possibly when the Jews were wandering around in the wilderness. I can picture Aaron exclaiming to one of his people, “Jobia, do you have to carry that 4 ft. idol every where you go? You are starting to give me the Hebi Jebis. God grief!!!

Maybe later, realizing that may be blasphemous, they changed it to good grief. Grieving the Almighty is God grief, whether it is spoken as good grief or God grief.

Remember Good Grief, Charlie Brown? Many of those statements could have been God Grief instead!

    I would change number one grief we cause God to Idol worship (one is being star struck and distracted and tainted by following people like Charlie Sheen)

    1. Idol worship (as in following movie star or wishing we were one)
    2. Lack of love for our fellow man (turning away from the homeless in disgust rather than doing something to comfort them)
    3. Arrogance ( Treating others as if nothing you say will hurt them)
    These for sure cause God grief. I’ll let someone else take it from here. But wait, One more thing.
    4. Pride ( like thinking we are better than some because of our financial status or perception we are more intelligent than most.

    Thanks for the reminder that we should make an effort to find out what does grieve God. From small actions to murder. Pain is pain. The negative we dish out to God and our brothers definitely cause God Grief. The love we indulge in always rings in peace of mind and abundant rewards in natural rejoicing.

    If you could walk like Jesus, God would walk with you. The Christ is the only way you will see an answer to what you can’t perceive. Everything else is futile. Fortunately, we have been blessed by one who has been tempted, as we have.

  • Wanda says:

    I think God Greives when He see people in pain or suffering in any way. It is the duty of each of us to look for the suffering and give them the love that God has given us. He gives me the strenghth to deal with all the STUFF that the devil throws at me. ANd I know that God does greive over my sins and hurts.

    • wptb says:

      Thanks Wanda. So glad you took the time to share what you feel grieves God. You are so right, unfortunately most pain and suffering is created by us or another human in our lives, that is especially grieving God, as you said. Look at Bonnies example of Top 10 List – What Grieves God. If you want to make your own Top 10 list of what grieves God, please do. I would enjoy that very much. I think many others would too. Some people don’t want to make this list because they feel under pressure to make the very top 10 mentions of grief to God. But I am really looking for individual, off the top of the head responses, so we cover many grievances instead of the Top 10 we all think of first; Usually the 10 Commandments or closely related.

    • wptb says:

      Thanks Wanda. I can see your life is dedicated to covering others sins through LOVE. It is unfortunate that most who sin against us, don’t take into their understanding, the sacrificial love that takes place in our forgiveness of the hurt. GBY.

    I believe that if we are UNABLE to experience the following, God’s Grief is Greater than we can imagine because His Love for us is greater than we can imagine……..
    It all begins with a simple FAITH IN GOD, BELIEVING
    that HE LOVED US SO MUCH THAT HE SENT HIS ONLY SON to DIE FOR OUR SINS. To be the ultimate sacrifice once and for ALL!! As we ACCEPT JESUS AS OUR SAVIOUR, we desire our LIVES TO BE RENEWED IN HIM.
    We learn that it is a joy to HUMBLE OURSELVES IN HIS PRESENCE, GIVE UP OUR OLD LIFE and to be LED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT into a new life…..DESIRING WITH ALL OUR HEARTS to OBEY HIM and for Him to be well pleased with us as we DEPEND ON HIM AND HIS STRENGTH.
    NOT DOUBTING BUT HAVING ALL FAITH that His strength will be made perfect in our weekness—finding joy in BEING KIND AND PATIENT TO OTHERS. Desiring to impart only good to our neighbors. WITHHOLDING JUDGEMENT towards others.
    Finding ourselves LOOKING FORWARD TO OUR TIME IN PRAYER with our Lord, DESIRING TO KNOW HIM MORE AND MORE. WAITING ANXIOUSLY FOR WHERE HE WILL LEAD US NEXT with all CONFIDENCE IN HES GREAT PLAN FOR US!!!
    And in the excitement for our new life in Christ we suddenly realize we NO LONGER POSSESS THE DISIRE FOR THE SINFUL THINGS IN OUR LIVES. As we learn to WORSHIP OUR GOD FAITHFULLY, we REALIZE OUR OWN SINFULNESS and become even more greatful for the sacrifice God made for us and LOOK FORWARD TO THE DAY JESUS RETURNS TO LIFT US UP TO HEAVEN.
    As we wait, our PRAYERS FOR THOSE WHO ARE LOST are lifted up to heaven…….GOD, MY PRAYER IS THAT YOU GIVE US THE HEART OF FLESH THAT YOU PROMISED YOUR CHILDREN THAT NOT OUR WILL BUT THINE BE DONE IN US……

    • Linda S. Very nice Linda. I like what you say, especially; “We learn that it is a joy to HUMBLE OURSELVES IN HIS PRESENCE,”….it’s all good though. Hope you will share more of your insight.
