I have a confession. Since everything that has happened in the last couple of years from the election, to Covid, to the lock down–to everything else–my compassion and love for my fellow man has waned. It is not as at once was.
Last night we were at our home group Bible study and God opened my eyes to this fact.
It doesn’t matter so much how I got to this place, but what will I do now? And all I know, is that I want to have the same love and compassion for my fellow man that Jesus did when He walked here on this Earth. And I am crying out to God today, “God restore my love and compassion!”
If you can relate to this, ask God to restore your love and compassion as well. Even when we are mocked, made fun of, or treated badly. May we continue to love. May we continue to show God’s mercy and compassion to those around us. May there be a marked difference in how we love and how the world loves. And through it all, may Jesus be seen in our lives and may God be glorified!
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
Colossians 3:12-14 NIV
