God made us in the picture of him, and so I wondered whether god also cried / cries because “freely crying” is such an ability that you can only find in human.
And soon I found there is a sentence in bible which said directly Jesus cried, it happened in the context that there was one dead brother from Jew and the sister of him cried for him and she asked Jesus to save her brother to keep from death. Jesus cried as he saw his grave. Jesus cried for other’s sadness. This empathy is also deep in our humanity. We tear down when we saw a sad movie, listen sad music or listen to other’s stories. But these tears are usually associated with our own experiences. We cried for the sad love movie because we had similar experiences before, so that’s how our understanding is built up.
But there is not so much positions where writes Jesus cried.
And so does it make sense for our human being that we repress our crying emotions?
My thoughts jumped out really quickly. As we all knew there is an old message that “Real men don’t cry.”, nowadays the culture encourages us again to show the true feelings and let tears out. It’s actually healthier to release the tear.
Crying lows down the pain and pressure. Why do we have so much pressure or pains? Why do we feel hopeless from time to time and we need urgently crying?
There is a show that I watched before, it’s about why we need the belief and hope even if sometimes it comes from deepest doubt of life.
