Bible: 2 Cor 7:10-11

7:10 For sadness as intended by God produces a repentance that leads to salvation, leaving no regret, but worldly sadness brings about death. 7:11 For see what this very thing, this sadness 1  as God intended, has produced in you: what eagerness, what defense of yourselves, 2  what indignation, 3  what alarm, what longing, what deep concern, 4  what punishment! 5  In everything you have proved yourselves to be innocent in this matter.
