Day 70 Compassion
Friday, December 2, 2016
Light shines in the darkness for the godly. They are generous, compassionate, and righteous. - Psalm 112:4
Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and compassionate? Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose. - Philippians 2:1-2
People who suffer greatly need our compassion and love, but instead they often receive our judgment and condemnation. Christ does not ask us to accept sin or the results of sin, but He commands us to love the one who sins.
Lord, let compassion rule in my heart as I face a sinful world. I am a sinner, too, and only through your infinite love am I made whole.
