We Cry Sometimes (John 11)

Jesus wept.

Sometimes we have the false idea that if we’re a Christian, the world around us won’t get to us, that’s just not how it works. We’re created as emotional beings. We’re meant to love and care and that means, sometimes, we get hurt. Don’t let your feelings take over, but you’re meant to feel. Love, be happy, rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep. When a friend is experiencing joy, be happy for them, don’t be envious. When tragedy strikes, weep… Jesus did. But just like He knew Lazarus would be alive again, we don’t weep with no hope. Laugh, cry, live life to the fullest.
