Feeling your pain…and joy

Be happy with those who are happy, and weep with those who weep. Rom 12:15

Through all the fist-pumping, overwhelmingly joyful celebration moments of our lives, heaven dances. Through every frustrating, humiliating, devastating moment of our lives, heaven weeps. When we show empathy for one another’s experiences of joy and pain we give God’s love a human face.

Lord, help me to reflect your loving care towards others.
