Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Compassion is not for personal glory, just as it is not a private internal emotion devoid of compassionate action. Christian compassion must always motivate us to act in the best interest and for the greater eternal good of those in need without calling attention to ourselves or our sacrifices. God provides what we need to bless others and takes care of the reward when our goal is to please him and when we long to be used by him to bless others in need.

My Prayer...

Loving God and tender Shepherd, use me to bless someone in need each day. Please open my eyes to see and my ears to see those around me who need emotional support or financial help. Please give me the courage to bless them and lead them closer to you as I seek to serve as my Savior did. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
