Opportunities for showing compassion are all around us. There are poor and sick, widows and orphans, distressed and despondent—people who need more than anything the refreshment a compassionate heart can bring. Pray earnestly for a compassionate heart, always ready to be an instrument of divine compassion. It was the compassionate sympathy of Jesus that attracted so many to Him on earth. That same compassionate tenderness will still draw people to you and to your Lord.
