Empathy is “the ability to understand and share the feelings of another.” Jesus showed us how to relate to others with empathy - and we are instructed in this verse to BE empathetic.

I believe that we are supposed to do this even if we don’t feel it emotionally, at first. I don’t mean to be fake, I mean to choose an empathetic response instead of an apathetic one. Our society is so apathetic it’s scary. I see people who care only about themselves and how situations affect them, even Christians. Their self-absorption blinds them to what is going on with their neighbor and they are missing their opportunities to love one another as Christ loves them. They are missing their chance to show empathy to a brother or sister - or even a stranger, like Jesus taught. And, they are missing their chance to be and to do what God created them to be and to do. #empathy #BEthechurch #loveoneanother #theywillknowusbyourlove #justdoit #yourjourneytobeingwhole #dailydevotional #shalom
