Romans 12:15 Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.
How do you react when something good happens to someone that you know. Are you jealous or envious? That is a great way to make yourself miserable. If on the other hand you rejoice with others in your life over their blessing it will surely increase the time you spend rejoicing.
Rejoicing with others is a great way to multiply your own blessings. When we are happy because someone else has been blessed it becomes a blessing to us also.
In the same spirit people are helped greatly when we share in their sorrow. I don't mean when we feel sorry for them but when we are sad and sorrowful with them. When others weep with you, it seems to make your burdens easier to bear.
