Truth for Today
“Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble.” 1 Peter 3:8
Thought for Today
Jesus’ actions were often motivated by compassion for the people around Him. The Bible says Jesus, “had compassion on them and healed their sick” (Mattthew 14:14). It also says Jesus, “had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd” (Mark 6:34). These examples of Jesus’ compassion show us that Jesus not only noticed the people around him, but He was also in tune with what they were feeling and what they were going through. Jesus’ compassion, filled with love, is what moved Him to take action.
Prayer for Today
Father, help me not to be absorbed in my own feelings, problems, worries, and desires. Jesus, today I want to practice compassion. I want to see people with Your eyes of compassion. Holy Spirit, fill me with the love and compassion of Jesus for others. Amen.
