Develop Your Empathy建立你的同理心

Romans12:15-16
‘Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.’

羅馬書12章15-16節
「要與喜樂的人一同喜樂,與哀哭的人一同哀哭。要彼此同心,不可心高氣傲,倒要俯就卑微的。不可自以為聰明。」

能夠進入別人的內心世界,設身處地為他人着想(considerate),與人同哭共笑等都是一個具「同理心」(empathy)的人之表現。但根據明愛機構最近一項調查(survey)發現,在六百多名小六受訪者(respondents)當中,他們能夠以平等態度尊重(respect)他人的同理心平均只得五十七分(一百分為滿分),而同理心較低的同學也較易欺凌(bully)及歧視別人(discriminate against others)。耶穌教導我們在世上為鹽為光,不要效法這個世界,要心意更新而變化,盼望你也能學習主耶穌的榜樣,培養一份同理心和愛心,與身邊的人建立一份和諧的關係(harmonious relationship),相信你的內心會變得更美麗、更豐富。
