Rejoice with those who rejoice; weep with those who weep.  – Rom 12:15

Reflection.  People always say, “Don’t cry” to those experiencing sorrow.  But “don’t cry” can mean “I’m too uncomfortable when you show your feelings.”  It’s better to say, “Go ahead and cry, I”m here at  your side to comfort you.”

Prayer.  Lord of life, teach me how to be a true friend to those in need.
