When you think of the word “empathy” what do you think?
It is more than just “feeling bad” for someone, empathy is truly understanding how someone is feeling to a degree of complete compassion and love.
This quote by David A. Bednar complete summarizes the powerful amount of empathy that the Savior has for each and every one of us.
The Savior knows us individually and his empathy for us is at an individual level.
What a blessing it is to be understood in a manner that Christ understands us.
To know that the Savior is ALWAYS there to extend his arm of mercy is incredible.
What a gift.
What a blessing.
What an extraordinary tribute to us…to know that the Savior will not only always be there for us, but he will completely and whole-heartedly understand every ounce of the struggles we may go through in life.
It is truly such a blessing to be members of the Church of Jesus Christy of Latter Day Saints. I feel extremely blessed to know that our Savior lives and loves us beyond measure.
Perhaps just knowing the love that the Savior has for us, can get us through those tough days.
