“Show Empathy” (Under the Juniper Tree S6E4)

Under the Juniper Tree Season 6, Episode 4 for Tuesday, September 19, 2017

Empathy is needed in the church today (Rom. 12:15). Nursing scholar Theresa Wiseman gave empathy four attributes:

  • To see the world as others see it.
  • To be nonjudgmental.
  • To understand another person’s feelings.
  • To communicate our understanding of that person’s feelings.

We sometimes feel that our words will make things better. Do not use “At least…” statements (1 Sam. 1:8). A proper connection is often achieved through our actions, not our words.
