(Podcast) The Downside of Empathy
Season 3, Episode 005: The Downside of Empathy
Empathy is usually seen as a positive thing...so why didn't Jesus use it to set people free?
Join Rick and Becky as they wrap up a month-long focus on resetting your life by examining the difference between empathy and compassion and why they shouldn’t be used interchangeably.
Turning to the Bible, they’ll explore Lazarus' death and resurrection (John 11) through a new lens, paying ridiculous attention to how Jesus displays compassion to Martha and Mary, but shies away from empathy.
Have you joined the Pigs? We're a group of friends ready to go all in with Jesus--to live a life that's “free indeed” because we’re wholly dependent on him. Join us for exclusive behind-the-scenes insights, opportunities to make your voice matter, prayer support, and connections to other Pigs inside our private Facebook group.
