This morning I was reading this article at Pete’s blog and it really made me stop and think. What can I do right now that will make this world a little more like God intended? That’s a big question. That’s a life-changing question. So here’s my answer….
Today I will show compassion. I won’t just feel compassion, but I will show it. The simple truth is, I feel compassionate for people all the time. But what do I do about it? Usually nothing. I have all kinds of good reasons. I’m too busy, I don’t have any cash, I’m exhausted, etc. What have my excuses accomplished? Nothing. I’m still busy, have no cash and am exhausted. And someone out there still has a hurting heart. Someone out there still needs to be shown compassion.
That changes today. Today I will be active in my compassion. Compassion will not be a descriptive word to convey a feeling I’m having. Today compassion will be a verb…an action word.
So now I pose that same question to you. What can you do today to make this world a little more like God intented?
