Be happy with those who are happy, and weep with those who weep.Romans 12:15
Empathy is the most important ability in connecting with another! God’s Word encourages us to lean in to the feelings of another. He does not ask us to fix or make the situation better, that is his job. He does ask us to lean in and experience the sorrow or joy of another.
Who’s life might God be asking you to truly connect with? Often we seek to connect with people that we enjoy or will benefit us. Who might God be calling you to “be with” not fix. It will take Empathy.
I am praying for you today! Let me know if I can help you in any other way.
