1. the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. Empathy is said to be lost in the church, however the worlds view of empathy is not what God calls us to be. We are held up to a higher standard.
Matthew 7:12, Jesus tells us, “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.” Life is not just about not doing to someone else that you wouldn’t want done to you. It’s about doing for another person what God would do for them. Did you think outside if yourself for that persons need? Did you bless them? Or we you too busy to not see their need?
