1 Peter 3:8, NKJV
Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous.
Everywhere you go these days, people are hurting and discouraged, and many have broken dreams. They've made mistakes; their lives are in a mess. They need to feel God's compassion and unconditional love. They don't need somebody to judge and criticize them. They need somebody to bring hope, to bring healing, to show God's mercy, to be there to encourage them, to take the time to listen and genuinely care.
Our world is crying out for people with compassion, people who love unconditionally. The apostle Paul says that God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit. If you want to live your best life, you must keep your heart of compassion open to be kind, caring, gentle, and loving. You need to be on the lookout for people you can bless. You can make a difference in other peoples' lives. When God puts love and compassion in your heart toward someone, follow that love. Don't ignore it. Act on it. Somebody needs what you have. Be a person of compassion.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that You have poured Your love into my heart through the Holy Spirit. Thank You that You have opened my spirit to be compassionate and kind and merciful to others like You are. I want to do the things that are on Your heart for others. In Jesus' Name, Amen
