And Hazael said, Why weepeth my lord? And he answered, Because I know the evil that thou wilt do unto the children of Israel: their strong holds wilt thou set on fire, and their young men wilt thou slay with the sword, and wilt dash their children, and rip up their women with child. 2 Kings 8:12
Would we weep if we, like the prophet Elisha, could see what the future holds for many people we know? Our life is made of choices and the choices we make today will determine whether we reap a sweet or bitter harvest.
