“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)
Have you ever considered mourning a spiritual act?
