COMPASSION

The Bible contains many stories about compassion - the restoration of Job's family and possessions, healing's of all descriptions, and even the raising of Lazarus from the dead.

When you show compassion for someone you show pity and deep sympathy. God, our Father, has compassion on us. Were it not for God sending Jesus to die on a cross, we would be hopelessly lost and not know about His grace. As we (the children of God) are part of Him; we are the outward expressions of His Love. God wants His children to show compassion to others; sinners and saints alike.

Think of ways you could put compassion into practice. Do you have a friend who is going through some emotional trials right now? Let him/her know that you care for them and that you will gladly listen if they just need to talk. No judgment or advice need be given. Help a homeless person on the street by inviting them into your home for a meal or to a nearby restaurant and buy them a meal. When you are finished eating tell them that God Loves them and that you'll be praying for them. God wants us to Love the "unlovely".

We always say "I could help so and so and do such and such. But...I don't have time today. I'll do it next week." Don't wait. The time to show compassion is now!

 I Peter 3:8 - Finally, all of you should be in agreement, understanding each other, loving each other as family, being kind and humble.

Zechariah 7:9 - This is what the LORD ALL-POWERFUL says: Do what is right and true. Be kind and merciful to each other.

 Prayer:  Dear Father let me show Love and be merciful and compassionate even as I want to receive the same. Amen
