Sympathetic and Empathetic

Sympathetic and Empathetic

Romans 12:15 (KJB) Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.

A sincere child of God reaches both ends of God’s spiritual character, a delight to sympathy and to shed tears of sorrow. A genuine child of God is both understanding and concerned, shedding both tears of joy and tears of compassion.  He or she feels great joy and jolted with great sadness when another weeps.

Just like God rejoices with us and wipes away our tears, a child of God is both sympathetic and empathetic to the needs and position of others in this world.  This support is vital for each of them operates as the hands and feet of God in this world, and in doing so, this requires relating with both the pain and joy of others.

I hope that you can commiserate with tears and express great joy in the happiness of others.  Doing so allows a child of God to show the love and compassion of God to hurting hearts in the valleys, and to celebrate in the joys of life found in “mountain top moments.”
