Afternoon Thought: Empathy and Sensitivity

Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn (Romans 12:15)

Empathy and sensitivity. It’s amazing how in the course of a day we can experience and witness such a wide range of emotions. It’s amazing how a face can spoil or brighten someone’s day. Little is more comforting for someone than to know that someone cares enough to be with them in whatever they’re going through and whatever they’re feeling. It’s easy to be heartless, callous and insensitive – being more concerned about how we feel. It’s something even more powerful to go from how we feel to share how someone else feels to show that we care.
