Nearly everywhere you turn you will see those who are hungry for compassion. While they may be reluctant to ask for it, people are desperate for simple acts of kindness. Consider those whom the Lord has brought into your life. What do they really need from you? How can you show them kindness and compassion? Notice the life of Jesus and how, when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion (Matthew 14:14). So, too we should be moved to show compassion in our actions to others.
