Empathy enables us to understand a person’s feelings in a given situation by putting us in their shoes. It’s an amazing trait to have, but don’t become so empathetic that you’re weighed down by the heaviness of their situation, and are unable to act compassionately towards them. Pastor Becky encourages us to stop allowing empathy to restrict us, so we can move in to compassion.

We all have a desire to be known, but we have a greater desire to know who we are. It’s only in Christ that we find ourselves.
