Have you ever thought you couldn’t empathize with someone else unless you walked a day in their shoes? Not so. The Bible says in Romans 12:15, “Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.” (It doesn’t say, "Take their place for a day first so you know what it’s like to weep.") and 1 Corinthians 12:26 says, “If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together…” Yet, our culture tells us it’s nearly impossible to relate to someone else or empathize with them if we haven’t walked in their shoes.
Truth is, we do have the ability to empathize and we each have our very own unique walk to take on this journey that teaches us and causes us to grow if we let it. We may have some similar experiences that help us relate to and understand each other but it doesn’t take one person stepping into another person’s shoes or onto their type of journey to be able to show compassion, concern, respect and care through empathy.
That’s what we’re talking about on the newest episode of The Woman Inspired Podcast, “The shoes that fit you best.”
