Ephesians 4:32 - Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.
God is loving as compassionate, and we are made in His image. Most people believe in a higher power and want to do good things.
When someone’s in need and you have the capacity to meet that need intersects and lines up, that is the moment for reaction. If we are able to meet a need then we are being the hand of feet of Jesus. We are called to do the work of the Lord and this is a way to do that.
While Jesus was here that is all He did...the work of the Lord, and He did this over and over in His ministry here on earth. He healed and helped thousands because He has compassion for them. He saw the people and their heart and in turn had a heart to help them.
“It’s easy to become blind to things, but in the same way that if you have a watering can, you look for flowers to water — look for someone who’s thirsty or needs a quick meal or a couple of dollars.”
This is one way to show compassion to other. See a need and try to fill that need if you are capable and able to do so.
Luke 6:36 - You must be compassionate, just as your Father is compassionate.
We don’t have the ability to raise anyone from the dead, but as Christians, we will feel the divine overflowing feeling Jesus felt, with the desire to act! Jesus said, you were made to be compassionate in the way God is. And in the miracle above, he’s showing us what that looks like.
We may not be able to perform miracles in the same sense that Jesus did but that doesn't mean that we can't be used to help someone in need, and that could be the miracle they have been praying for. Seek the Holy Spirit and let Him guide your compassion for others and then follow His lead on what you can do to help.
