I would turn the question around by saying that, to me, the sharing of joys and sorrows among the members of a Christian congregation, and their mutual support of one another at such times, is (or should be) modeled after the manner in which the members of an individual family similarly support, rejoice with, and comfort one another (in addition to their common joyful bond of all receiving eternal life through faith in Christ).

Jesus used this analogy when He said that those who do the will of God the Father are His brother, and sister, and mother (Matthew 12:50).
