“Mourn with those who mourn.”  Romans 12:13

Note that this balances the other half of this verse, from yesterday:

“Rejoice with those who rejoice;

Mourn with those who mourn.”

There are Psalms of Lament (e.g. Ps 73), a book called Lamentations, and a Beatitude on mourning (Matthew 5:4).  Isaiah prophesied about the “Man of Sorrows.” (Isaiah 53:3)

"Man of Sorrows"  Albrecht Durer

“Man of Sorrows” Albrecht Durer

Have you ever considered mourning a spiritual act?
