Use Sadness to Help Others

Sadness has a value in that when we are sad, we can learn to appreciate the suffering of others. This will motivate us to help them. Our own emotional experience will motivate us more than if we merely have an "intellectual knowledge" of the obligation to help.

(from Maamar Mordechai, p.36; Rabbi Pliskin's Gateway to Happiness, pp.172-3)
