Empathy is the capacity to understand what another person is experiencing from within the other person’s frame of reference, the capacity to place oneself in another’s shoes.
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. (Colossians 3:12)
Look at all your shoes, runners, bedside slippers, sandals, flip flops, or boots. As you look at the different shoes, let them remind you of various people that you meet in your daily lives.
Dear God, give me insight to understand the other person and help me to show them support and empathy.
