TEXT: 1 John 3:17 “But whoever has this world’s goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in Him?
You’ve probably heard the saying that “you may be the only Jesus someone ever sees.” There may be a desperate person Who is in need of something as small as a smile or a small amount Of money,and you might be the best or the only example Of Jesus’ to them! With this in mind, look for Ways today to live with true compassion and a caring attitude toward others. This is how you can plant seeds of God in someone. You may not be around to see the seeds grow into a large and beautiful plant, but you could make life- changing impact where you are!
Compassion is simply feeling what others feel, and then letting them know that you care about them by the loving way you treat them. It sounds easy enough/ but it’s usually harder to practice compassion than it is to talk about it. Through Christ, you are more than capable Of being a compassionate person each day, All that you have to do, is be sensitive to the leading of the Spirit, and follow directions when He prompts you to act towards someone in need. You have that “small voice” inside of you that tells you what you should do, Just listen to it! When you understand what people are going through,then you can understand their needs. Read Ephesians 4:29
