“How Can the Church Help? Empathy”

HOST: Andrew Crowe




Show Notes:

  • There are many ways that the church can help someone who is going through mental anguish. This week, Andrew discusses how the church can be empathetic.

Outline of this episode:

  • James 1:19
    • We need to be empathetic.
  • Romans 12:15
    • Rejoice means to be “full of cheer”
    • Christianity is not a competition.
    • Weep means to “sob, wail”
    • The idea is that we are there for our brethren in good times and bad.
  • It is hard sometimes to show the empathy we would like to show.
    • Example
    • While we may sometimes want to say just the right thing, the right thing may be saying a praying and crying with them.
      • This includes if someone comes forward confessing sin or asking for encouragement.
      • Pray with them, for them, and encourage them.
