God: shed tears over us…
John 11:35 (KJV) “Jesus wept”.
Many times we have intimate relationships with others which brings about compassion when things happen to them, be it good or bad. We laugh when its a happy occurrence and in the alternate hearing about negative things happening can bring about tears or sorrow.
It does affect us when our loved ones are deeply hurt and in pain and when we cannot resolve or assist with the situation.
God feels the same about us, but at a deeper level, because He knows everything about us. Happy dilemma in a weird way.
He does shed tears at times when our afflictions hurts so badly that it takes us outside of our self with sorrow. God has a vested interest in us.
