Be Compassionate

When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.

(Matthew 9:36 NIV)

There comes a time when we begin to show compassion even for the person who has wronged us. We begin to see them as Jesus did the people of His day–lost and confused like sheep without a shepherd. This compassion then moves us to take action. I know it has to be the power of God because on our own we can’t come to grips with this. “The LORD is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love. The LORD is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made” (Psalm 145:8-9). Let’s follow His example.

Our compassion should extend to all people.
