Spread Compassion Around
- 2013 3 Jun
I’ve become more aware of suffering that is taking place all around me. If you’re like me, you know of loved ones who are struggling—perhaps with illness, financial worries, marital challenges. While it is tempting to hide away from these problems, God calls us to be people of compassion. Scripture tells us, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our afflictions, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort which we ourselves are comforted by God” (2 Corinthians 1:3-4).
