Good Morning, DearHeart.

How many times do we see people get themselves in a pickle then it seems there’s no way out? Gee, how many times do we get ourselves in a pickle and panic? There’s a lot of finger pointing and jump on the mean-girl wagon these days. With social media, it is easy now to share your view from behind a screen of safety. Seems to me we could all step up our efforts toward compassion. A little less “GOTCHA” and a lot more “well, nobody’s perfect, be more careful next time”.

Consider this about Christ & compassion:

⁃ “When He saw the crowds, He had compassion on them because they were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.” (Matthew 9:36 NLT).

⁃ “When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, He had compassion on them and healed their sick.” (Matthew 14:14 NLT).

⁃ “Jesus called his disciples to Him and said, “I have compassion for these people; they have already been with me three days and have nothing to eat. I do not want to send them away hungry, or they may collapse on the way.” (Matthew 15:32 NIV).

⁃ “Jesus had compassion on them and touched their eyes. Immediately they received their sight and followed him.” (Matthew 20:34 NIV).

Jesus cared about the confused, the helpless, the sick, the hungry. But His compassion moved Him so deeply that He did something for them. And, then He gave the ultimate sacrifice for us.

So when asked, “Why should I care?”, may my response be, “We want to be like Jesus.”

And Jesus always had compassion.

Like Him, we can choose to be

A protector for those who need protection,

A guide for those who have lost their way,

A bridge for those with a wide river to cross,

A safe place for those who need a space to land,

A light for those who are in the dark,

A servant for all those who have a need.

Wake up.

Act from compassion.
