As the Lord continues to teach me I am reminded of His compassion. So often I think I have compassion, yet I have none or very little. A biblical picture of compassion involves action. So often I might feel bad or even guilty for the homeless, the sick, the orphans, the widows, or the lost in this world. But rarely do I act on this. I pray that I might learn to have a greater compassion, not lacking action. For I am forever indebted to a God who did not just feel guilty or sad for my helpless condition, but in compassion gave His life so that my condition might be changed. It is encouraging to read and see how Jesus Christ demonstrated compassion throughout His life on earth rather than just feeling compassion. May I do likewise!
