  • In the workplace and in families, people can experience the same interaction very differently. How do you bridge that gap? Learn empathy-the ability to recognize and share the emotions of another person. Feeling life from their vantage point helps you understand them. Members of a blended family often have very different experiences of each other. Applying empathy helps everyone bridge their gaps, find compassion for each other, and strengthen their home.

Empathy can bless your home.

Ron: Empathy can bless your home.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: In the movie, “Vantage Point,” an assassination attempt on the President is presented from the various perspectives of different characters. It’s amazing how different their experience of the same event is. This happens in the workplace and families, too. People can experience the same interaction very differently. How do you bridge that gap? Learn empathy—the ability to recognize and share the emotions of another person.  Feeling life from their vantage point helps you understand them.

Members of a blended family often have very different experiences of each other. Applying empathy helps everyone bridge their gaps, find compassion for each other, and strengthen their home. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
