Day 312 – Sympathy

Therefore, as Gods chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
-Colossians 3:12

Every time you understand and affirm someones feelings, you build fellowship. The problem is that we’re often in such a hurry to fix things that we don’t have time to sympathize with people. Or, sometimes, we’re preoccupied with our own hurts. Self-pity dries up sympathy for others.
