Our God is filled with compassion and as His followers we too should be filled with compassion. One of the ways we can follow closer behind God is by showing mercy to those who need it most. What does can this look like? Befriend someone who is bullied and lonely. Generously babysit for single mothers struggling to make ends meet. Teach your business knowledge to a fledgeling young graduate. You have a lot to offer, if only you would turn and comfort them.
Their insults have broken my heart, and I am in despair. If only one person would show some pity; if only one would turn and comfort me.
~ Psalm 69:20 [ NLT]
