Ways to Remember Expressing Empathy to Others

Reflect on God’s Patience in your personal life
Psalm 78:38 NKJV
But He, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity, And did not destroy them. Yes, many a time He turned His anger away, And did not stir up all His wrath;
Yet he was merciful; he forgave their inequities and did not destroy them. Time after time he restrained his anger and did not stir up his full wrath.
Be kind and compastionate
2. Remember your relationship with God
Colossians 3:12–13 NKJV
Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.
Col. 3:12-13
God wants you to love like he does
3. Learn to see things Through Heavens eyes
Psalm 103:8–13 NKJV
The Lord is merciful and gracious, Slow to anger, and abounding in mercy. He will not always strive with us, Nor will He keep His anger forever. He has not dealt with us according to our sins, Nor punished us according to our iniquities. For as the heavens are high above the earth, So great is His mercy toward those who fear Him; As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us. As a father pities his children, So the Lord pities those who fear Him.
psalm 103:
having compassionate empathy
4. Let personal Adversity help other Peoples Adversity
2 Corinthians 1:3–5 NKJV
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ.
By bringing brokenness and sensitivity to your life
Matthew 9:36–38 NKJV
But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
Matthew 9:36-38
When people throw rocks or insults your way that means they need love
5. Slow Down and Listen to God and People
Romans 12:16 NKJV
Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion.
Hebrews 10:24–25 NKJV
And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.
Se sensitive to each others needs don’t think yourselves better than others make humble people your friends. Don’t be conceited
