Well connected

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

God gave us the capacity for empathy so that nobody has to feel alone. We share in the compassion of Christ and experience a unity and connection to Him and to others when we allow ourselves to share in the experiences and emotions of those around us and let others into our experiences a well. Everybody needs to be known, loved, and understood.

Lord, thank you for friends who allow themselves to feel what I am feeling in order to connect with me.
