The Compassion

My day was really good. Fur Ball and I stayed home all day; it was quiet. I spent most of my morning reading my Bible, and writing in my journal. The word I am focusing on right now is compassion. 
I think to be a truly compassionate person, one must understand the compassion of Jesus. And, to be a compassionate person, I think too that I need to integrate that compassion of Jesus into my life, so that His compassion becomes my own. So, as I read through my Bible today, I also began to pray that the compassion of Jesus would flow through me.
There have been times in my life that I have believed my actions to be compassionate, but in reality, I don't think they really were. Not the compassion of Jesus anyway. Compassion is an action, not just a feeling. Compassion moves my faith forward, and builds my heart into wise strength and discerning love.
As I paged through my Bible this morning I was blown away by the depth of compassion my God has for me! He has always had for His people! He does not withhold His compassion from me!

You, O Lord, will not with hold Your compassion from me, your loving kindness and your truth will continually preserve me. Psalms 40:11

Just as my God does not with hold His loving kindness and His compassion from me, I too desire to treat my fellow man exactly the same way. I need the compassion of Jesus to flow through me and to preserve me, so I will continually live in His truth. 
Jesus Say that Again!
