Bursting into tears.  Weeping.  Sobbing.  Tears of joy.  Crying fit.  Crying our eyes out.

However we say it, we all do it; some just do it more than others.  According to statistics, “Women cry five times as much as men. Women cry 64 times a year as compared to 17 times a year for men” (Health Central).  As true as this may be, there are plenty of strong, manly men who could give these statistics a serious run for their money. 

No matter who, why, or how much we do it, crying typically isn’t a very enjoyable experience.  Usually crying is an outward sign of our inward pain.  This is exactly why the words of Revelation 21:4 are so appealing, “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.”

What a uniquely wonderful reward stacked upon so many others (Revelation 21).  Without a doubt, this is something we can look forward to in heaven.  Let’s be sure to live in a way to ensure our names are in the “book of life” so we will never again have to worry about shedding tears of sorrow (Revelation 21:27).
