Guided by Compassion

If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion—how can God’s love be in that person? 1 John 3:17 NLT 

When Jesus walked this earth, He was a man who was moved with compassion. Compassion means sympathetic consciousness of others’ distress together with a desire to alleviate it. He was always aware of the distress in people’s lives. He didn’t walk away but always alleviated their distress. This scripture speaks to everyone. Many times people think that they don’t have enough. And it may appear that they are right until they take a few steps and meet someone with nothing.  Then the little they have appears to be wealth in comparison to the need of the person in front of them. 

Here it comes: the heart of compassion. Are you going to offer help? In these times when there is so much loss and hardship, people are in need of help. Programs that provide help to those in need are a lifeline for many. In today’s world, compassion can take many forms, not just money. If there is someone who has mobility problems then compassion can be running an errand for that neighbor. Compassion could be sharing the overflow of your blessing with another. But compassion is a choice. Will you do it? You are the only person who can answer that question. If you do, God will most definitely bless what you have left. 

Thought for Today: Compassion shows God’s love in you

Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.

  1. “Many times people think that they don’t have enough. And it may appear that they are right until they take a few steps and meet someone with nothing.” This is a reminder for me to be continually grateful and allow the Lord to show me how I can take the little, offer it to Him and watch it bless another.
