Compassion

Leviticus 19:18

Leviticus 19:18

Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.

After Thought

We often wrong ourselves, but we soon forgive ourselves those wrongs, and they do not at all lessen our love to ourselves; in like manner we should love our neighbor.

~ Matthew Henry

Proverbs 24:11

Proverbs 24:11

Rescue the perishing; don't hesitate to step in and help.

After Thought

Isaiah 32:2

Isaiah 32:2

Each one will be like a shelter from the wind and a refuge from the storm, like streams of water in the desert and the shadow of a great rock in a parched land.

After Thought

When a righteous king rules the people in his realm are a blessing and help to all. They each display the attributes of their king. In the same way, Christians are to behave in a manner worthy of their King. Be a blessing to someone today.

Proverbs 21:13

Proverbs 21:13

Those who shut their ears to the cries of the poor will be ignored in their own time of need.

After Thought

I choose kindness… I will be kind to the poor, for they are alone. Kind to the rich, for they are afraid. And kind to the unkind, for such is how God has treated me.

Hebrews 13:3

Hebrews 13:3

Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.

After Thought

For years I thought my assignment or the Church's assignment was to articulate the Gospel and nothing more. Now I believe that if we don't support the verbal expression of the Gospel with physical demonstration of compassion, we are not imitating Jesus.

Isaiah 42:3

Isaiah 42:3

A bruised reed He will not break and a dimly burning wick He will not extinguish; He will faithfully bring forth justice.

After Thought

I choose gentleness… Nothing is won by force. I choose to be gentle. If I raise my voice may it be only in praise. If I clench my fist, may it be only in prayer. If I make a demand, may it be only of myself.

James 1:27

James 1:27

Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.

After Thought

There is too much huff and puff and spit and spray spoken by many Christians. Real faith is an action based upon truth.
