Sharing humanity with one another

“Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep” (Romans 12:15)

Empathy takes time
Empathy takes energy
Sympathy stays on the surface

The place of worth in giving empathy
The place of capability in giving empathy

Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God and afflicted. (Isaiah 53:4)
Isaiah 53:1-7 - Suffering servant

Galatians 6:2-5
Independence, dependence, and interdependence

“We do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses” (Hebrews 4:15)
Hebrews 4:11-16

The word of God is powerful in itself, people don’t need my judgment added to it, but rather bringing empathy to the table brings Jesus into the room. Because Jesus is empathetic, I can be empathetic with His Light living in me.
