Dr. Sam Storms writes about Paul's clear pastoral nature as reflected in this text:

"And, apart from other things, there is the daily pressure on me of my anxiety for all the churches. Who is weak, and I am not weak? Who is made to fall, and I am not indignant?" – 2 Corinthians 11:28-29 

He notes Paul's great burden for his people, and its passionate expression through identifying with others' weakness (empathy and humility) as well as indignation for sin (righteous anger).

Includes some great D.A. Carson quotes on the same text.
