  1. Empathy with #compassion is how we can truly change the world, even by reaching only one person at a time. Mark 16:17-18. Jesus was moved by empathy and compassion. Sympathy is non-productive. Empathy is love. Compassion acts. Sympathy never changed my life. Compassion did.

    1. We have a loving and compassionate God. Yes, even by reaching one heart at a time, spreading kindness, love and compassion. Thank you, Melinda!
