September 20 "Rend Your Heart" Joel 1-3

Dear Kids,  Rend your hearts, not your garments only.  Joel 2:13.  "The rending of the clothes was an expression of extraordinary uncontrollable emotion, chiefly of grief, of terror, or of horror. At least, in Holy Scripture it is not mentioned as a part of ordinary mourning, but only upon some sudden overpowering grief, whether public or private."  When things happen in this life that call to our grief, let your own sin break your heart. Be more concerned with what happens on the inside than on the outside.  Rend your heart, not your garments.
