God wants us to care about everyone's feelings.
Judge your neighbours feelings by your own, and in every matter, be thoughtful.
(Sir 31: 15)
OUR DAILY PRAYER FOR OCTOBER: EMPATHY
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.
An empathetic person...
- listens when people speak
notices when someone is upset and tries to help
can name her-his feelings
can see a situation from another persons point of view
accepts that others have different perspectives
Judge your neighbours feelings by your own and let every matter be thoughtful. There are days in our lives that we may see others come to school sad, afraid, frustrated, or even angry. To live the virtue of EMPATHY is not to judge those people because we never know what others are holding in their hearts. In your everyday life try to remember that you may not always understand what others are feeling, but you can always be a good friend.
If you cant feed a hundred people, then feed just one.
Life's most urgent question is: what are you doing for others.
Martin Luther King Jr.
CAN YOU THINK OF A TIME WHEN YOUR FRIEND CAME TO SCHOOL SAD AND YOU HELPED MAKE THEM HAPPY?
