"If we can share our story with someone who responds with empathy and understanding, shame can't survive."
Brene Brown, Daring Greatly

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses
Hebrews 4:15, NIV

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.
John 1:14, NIV

Empathy is feeling with people a kind of sacred space when someone is in a deep hole and we climb down [and say], Hey I know what it's like down here and you're not alone.
Brene Brown, RSA talk, Youtube

Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing
 by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.
Philippians 2:3-6, NIV

As [Jesus] approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it.
Luke 19:41, NIV
