Today I was reading about compassion
and recalled a picture from 2008
on Park Avenue , New York City.
The pace...people scattered.. busy
Ann Voskamp writes speaking of compassion
in 'The Broken Way'
"...it's key to humanity's survival. Compassion heals
what condemnation never could.
Why is condemnation so quick in our veins and compassion so sluggishly slow?
People don't have to be good
to deserve our compassion;
it's our compassion that serves good to all people."
Charles Spurgeon said, "If you could sum up the whole character of Christ in reference to ourselves,
it might be gathered into this one sentence,
' He was moved with compassion.' "
"But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd."
Matthew 9:36 (NKJV)
