Jesus loved his friends!
Today’s Gospel from John 11 is one of my favorite and not just because Jesus raises Lazarus from the tomb. It has the smallest verse in the Bible some say. ‘And Jesus wept.’ Jesus had friends and cried at their loss. Even Jesus cried when he had the power to bring them back. That is love. To me, that is amazing. So when you are sad, go ahead and cry. Even Jesus did. And remember the story isn’t over yet!
It is amazing. And all the more when you realize how he has saved us through this love he has. He weeps for each of us as we have problems.pain and death were not the original plan. As the world continues its journey toward perfection, many tears will be shed… ours and His.
