Shalom: Practicing Empathy

Romans 12:13-17 (CEB)

13 Contribute to the needs of God’s people, and welcome strangers into your home. 14 Bless people who harass you—bless and don’t curse them. 15 Be happy with those who are happy, and cry with those who are crying. 16 Consider everyone as equal, and don’t think that you’re better than anyone else. Instead, associate with people who have no status. Don’t think that you’re so smart.17 Don’t pay back anyone for their evil actions with evil actions, but show respect for what everyone else believes is good.

Showing Empathy for all other humans has to be a part of Shalom.

Empathy: The ability to understand and share the feelings of another.”
