5 Things the Bible says about Compassion

“Jesus wept over Jerusalem. How often do we weep over the great cities of this country or those around the world? Do we even weep for our own communities when we see poverty, abuse, and suffering? As believers we have a special responsibility to have compassion on the poor, the sick, the oppressed, the hungry, the outcast, and those ton by terrorism and war all over the world.

You don’t have to get up and preach; you don’t have to be an evangelist; you don’t have to be a vicar or a priest; you can be an ordinary worker wherever you are and witness for Christ. You witness by the way you live, by your attitude – your love care, and compassion toward people no matter their race, religion, or ethnic background. If we put hands and feet to the Gospel message and live it out daily, those around us will see it for what it is – the Truth that transforms.” —Billy Graham
