Teachings of Jesus Christ, Part 11—Empathy

By Mormon.org

Human suffering takes many forms, including the loss of a loved one. Jesus Christ showed empathy again and again throughout His ministry to those who suffered from physical, emotional, and spiritual pain. Notice the way the Savior responds to Mary and Martha’s grief at the death of their brother, Lazarus, in this video.

Though Jesus knew He would raise Lazarus from the dead and that all people would be resurrected at the last day, He still felt the pain that Mary and Martha felt and wept with them. Likewise, we can show empathy to those who suffer and use what we have learned from our trials to help them. Missionaries can help you learn more about Jesus Christ and how to become more like Him.
