Empathy: Power to Cultivate Compassion! Part Two

“So whatever you wish that others would do to you, also do to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” Matthew 7:12

“Empathy is like a spring of understanding that flows from one heart to another.” Though If asked to describe empathy, most people would say it is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. Because empathy is a fundamental human characteristic that allows us to connect with others, understand their thoughts and experiences, and respond in a supportive and compassionate way. It is an example of a Golden Rule-style moral imperative, a formulation expressing the notion of treating others in the same way that one would want to be treated.

I understand there is an empathy deficit in society. In our increasingly complex and technological world, many people find it difficult to muster the empathy required to understand and relate to others truly. There is a widespread empathy deficit in our society, and this is contributing to a host of social ills. Remember, when we can’t empathize with others, we are more likely to be judgmental, exclusive, and unsympathetic. We may also be more likely to engage in harmful behaviors such as bullying, violence, and scapegoating.

Philippians 2:3 says, “Do nothing from rivalry or conceit but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.”

Fortunately, we can activate what Jesus taught us in Matthew 7:12, called the Golden Rule style, also known as empathy-driven moral imperative. When we apply Christ’s teaching, we can start by realizing that empathy is a moral imperative. Because it is not enough to understand the feelings of others – we must also act on that understanding in a way that is compassionate and supportive. When we prioritize empathy, we create a more just and compassionate world. We build a world where everyone is valued and included, and no one is left behind.

Brethren, treat others with the same kindness and respect you wish to be treated with – it is the golden rule of life. We must be conscious of Christ’s teaching and its implications in our daily lives. It is important to take into account the needs of other people, as well as our own needs when making decisions or interacting with those around us. By practicing the Golden Rule regularly, we can ensure that we do not neglect the feelings, needs, or opinions of others. We can create a kinder and more understanding society by treating each other with respect, empathy, and kindness. Especially in this season. Amen. Colossians 3:12 says, “Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience.”

1. Any spell of selfishness holding me from breaking forth and being a blessing, I command you to be destroyed now.
2. May the Lord empower you to bless others as He empowers Abraham. In Jesus’ name. Amen
