Everyone needs compassion

Everyone needs compassion. Not pity, but compassion. That has been in my heart over the last few weeks. Everyone needs compassion. Even the people who have hurt me, I need to have compassion on them. When I can remember people need compassion, they are easier to forgive.

Today I was working on forgiving someone and struggling. Then I thought of my list of sins against this person. Hmmmm. I better forgive because if they do not, I am in trouble! Everyone needs compassion.

This morning I woke up and I wondered how I was going to get all my work done this week. I had way to much of it. “I better spend a lot of time with God!” I thought. When did my worldview change from “I am busy this week, so I am not going to have enough time with God.” to “I am really busy this week, I better spend a lot of time with God so I can get all my work done.”? Me gusta.

Everyone needs compassion. I know I have said that already. In my extra quiet time with God, I am trying to work through the issue I discovered on Sunday morning. I really do not have the heart to tell you about it here. But I am absolutely sure there are a few big issues in my life that if I do not deal with soon, they are going to ruin my effectiveness in ministry. Some days the depth of my brokenness scares me. It really is quite amazing that God looks at me and loves me. He looks at me and loves me because I have a heart like Jesus because He gave it to me. He has pretty crazy love to put up with my pride. I have a lot of it. He has compassion.

The LORD is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made. Psalm 145:9
