Virtue of the Month



February's Virtue

February's Virtue is Empathy

Empathy is being able to identify with, and feel the concerns, feelings and needs of another person.  A person of empathy is able to listen sensitively, understand and lovingly “be with” another person.  Empathy is at the heart of the ministry of Jesus who first sought to love and understand the people he later healed, and empathy is also at the heart of discipleship. 

Finally, all of you, have unity of spirit, sympathy, love for one another, 
a tender heart and a humble mind.
Hebrews 3.8

Dear God, 
I believe that You always listen to me lovingly,
And for this I praise You.
Teach me to be like You
And listen with my ears and my heart to understand others.
Guide me to commit myself to resolve the suffering of others.
Help me to walk in the Spirit of Jesus,
As I learn about,
And respond to the many needs of our world.
Amen.
