Romans 12:15

"Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep."
Romans 12:15

 I like this.  It's clear and simple and it embraces appropriate emotion.  To be good people, we don't have to banish emotion from our lives.  We just have to tame it a little, right? :)  We shouldn't be laughing at other people's misfortunes, and we shouldn't be sad when other people prosper. :)  Instead, we should care about each other as siblings and friends... when something good happens to any of them, we should rejoice with them naturally.  And when something bad happens, we should mourn with them, and help them through it.
Today, let's try not to let anyone be outside our circle of people we can empathize with.  Let's care about other people and do what we can for them.  Let's be real, honest, and sincere... not hiding our emotion, but sharing in other's joys and griefs appropriately. :)  We know that love can change the world... but it can also change just today.  Just this moment.  This hour... this interaction.  Let's enlarge our hearts a little and make the difference. :)
