Cultivating Empathy

I think that what the church should do is to focus on cultivating empathy.

Empathy is at play when we:

take the focus off of ourselves and put it on the suffering of othersobserve the suffering of others and in some sense feel that suffering ourselvesare then driven to seek solutions for this suffering

 

In Romans 12:15, the Apostle Paul instructs us to “rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.”
