Live with Compassion for Others

JUNE 12TH, 2021      |    There’s a lot to be said about true compassion. Unlike mere sympathy that looks in from the outside, compassion comes from the inside. It mourns with those who mourn, grieves with those who grieve; it walks the extra mile and gives grace to the undeserving. 

It is love at the core and the very character of God shown through Jesus who demonstrated compassion to the outcasts, those least valued, the unseen, those who are sick, dying, grief-stricken, and discouraged. His ultimate act of compassion was the sacrifice of love as He was beaten and nailed to a cross, and it lives on for you today. It never stops, and it never fails. Each and every day there is a fresh new dose.

Whatever you may be facing, trust that He cares and He will step in. He is touched by your circumstance; His relentless compassion and faithfulness are great. Be encouraged and spread compassion to others so they too can be blessed.

Thank God for the compassion and faithfulness He has shown you personally.

Pray that you would show compassion to others as God has shown you.
