Side by Side – Romans 12:15

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

Romans 12:15
Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.

This verse really isn’t that hard to do. All you have to do is put yourself in the other persons shoes for a just a moment. When we do, we start thinking of all the emotions that would be filling our heart if we were the one going through it.

The problem is that more often than not we’re too focused on what we have going on. It can be almost as if we have blinders on causing us to have tunnel vision. As a result, we forget we have people all around us going through some of the same battles, climbing many of the same hills, going through almost the exact same struggles of life. Yet, there are those times when they may be going through something only a few have experienced. Either way, they’re right beside us but we don’t see them because of our tunnel vision.

Don’t you think it’s time we take the blinders off? Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, shalom!
