Empathy ~ October
God wants us to care about everyone’s feelings.
An empathetic person…
- Listens when people speak
- Notices when someone is upset and tries to help
- Can understand and name her/his feelings
- Can see a situation from another person’s point of view
- Accepts that others may feel differently about things than they do
Our Daily Prayer for October
Let us now pray…for the grace and strength to be people of empathy – people who can really identify with and feel the concerns of those around us. AMEN
