GROWING IN COMPASSION
   
  WEDNESDAY
JUL. 23
   
 

2Corinthians 1:3-4
Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.


One of the things that God has commissioned you for is to provide comfort to others. And one of the ways that God equips us to comfort others is by giving us His comfort when we go through our trials and tribulations. We will go through things that will consciously or unconsciously develop compassion in us for others. And God will comfort us in such a way that we will be able to comfort others in all kinds of situations.

In prayer, compassion can be both developed and expressed. Compassion will make you pray and ask God for grace and mercy on behalf of others. God will put His burdens in your heart for the lost and hurting. It takes compassion to watch over the lives of others. And as you watch, more compassion will develop in your heart. It takes compassion to really bear one another's burden and fulfill the law of Christ, Gal.6:2.

Compassion requires every part of you. You need to stop, look, listen and consider (think about) others. Open your eyes and look. How do you see people and their situations? Some people are still seeing men like trees so they want to pluck things from them or cut them down or just ignore them. See the terrible devastation the devil is causing in the lives of the precious human souls that God sent Jesus to die for. Try to put yourself in their shoes and think of the danger they must be in. Allow the Holy Spirit to help you to see as God sees (with the eyes of love).

DECLARATION: Dear God, fill me with a heart of true love and also help me to grow in compassion.
