FIT@50 \ week 3

Empathy: It’s okay to care.

No matter how “fit” I’ve become, minding my own business has always been my business. During the many years in special operations my job was to know other’s secrets. I was good at my job.

Knowing the darkest moments in another person’s life is a cross of confidentiality I understood I’d carry to my grave. Over the years it might have even caused me to construct a wall around my empathetic understanding.

During a church service I looked around and saw people. I mean really saw people. I began to sense their hurt, their grief and their concerns. My immediate reaction was to mind my own business.

The difference was God placed them on my heart. They’d become my business. Without knowing their names or their “secrets,” I sensed connections with them. I began to pray for people I knew only by God placing their situations on my heart.

I didn’t have to get in their business and for certain sake, didn’t spread their business. I simply asked God to handle their business—Empathy.

Do good,

Scott
