By Alicia Searl

“The Lord is gracious and compassionate, sluggish to anger and wealthy in love. The Lord is nice to all; he has compassion on all he has made.” – Psalm 145:8-9

Whereas the dictionary defines the phrase ‘compassion’ as having “sympathetic pity and concern for the struggling and misfortunes of others,” the Bible’s definition goes a bit deeper than that.

Elijah was met by a compassionate widow who feed him in her dwelling with out having a lot herself (1 Kings 17:7-16). There are numerous different tales that depict individuals displaying compassion towards others, even by way of tough instances.

Biblical compassion exudes kindness, extends forgiveness, is humble and affected person, and bears each other’s burdens (Ephesians 4:32, Colossians 3:1, Galatians 6:2). Basically, it’s selfless.

Fellow brothers and sisters, we get to expertise this sacred and excellent compassion through the Easter season as we relive the story of God’s nice love and His coronary heart for all mankind (John 3:16). This compassion is what offers us hope. That’s as a result of God’s compassion shouldn’t be solely infinite however everlasting, and that’s value sharing!
