There is a tendency for us to say, ‘I am afraid of the grief, I am afraid of the sorrows’…But look at Jesus. He was perfect, right? And yet he goes around crying all the time. He is always weeping, a man of sorrows. Do you know why? Because he is perfect. Because when you are not all absorbed in yourself, you can feel the sadness of the world

–Tim Keller, Walking With God Through Pain and Suffering, pg. 253
