When you show compassion for someone you show empathy. God has compassion on us. God has shown compassion to us through sending Jesus to die on a cross. Because of this, we continue to experience grace in our lives. As an expression of His love, we can continue to show compassion to others.
How can we put compassion into practice? Do you have a friend going through a tough time? Let them know you care and that you will listen to them. No judgment or advice needs to be given.
We often say we are too busy or we don’t have time today or we’ll do it next week. Don’t wait. The time to show compassion is now.
This is what the Lord says: Do what is right and true. Be kind and merciful to each other.
