Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. When you are hurting, it helps when someone understands what you’re going through.
I’ve had miscarriages and women who have experienced miscarriages shared in my sadness. They knew exactly how I felt and could empathize with me. They wanted to empathize with me.
The Creator of the Universe tells humanity that He empathizes with us:
For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities. Hebrews 4:15
God is not sitting distanced from the world. He came down in the form of a man to rescue mankind from sin. He continues to empathize with our sorrows.
Next time you feel alone and forgotten, remember there is someone who knows how you are feeling. He will comfort you. How wonderful!
