When I think of the spiritual quality of compassion, I think of Jesus. The love he gave others was like a healing balm.
In quiet moments I remember God's compassion for me and for all people. I set aside time to fully engage with God's love. I extend myself to others through my compassionate thoughts and actions. Throughout the day, I behold the Christ in others and send them compassion-filled thoughts and prayers.
These heart-to-heart connections enhance my sense of oneness with the world. We are one with God and one with each other. I am an expression of God's love, and through compassion, I connect to—and serve—all humanity.
As God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience.—Colossians 3:12
