The Lord is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.
God is the essence of perfect goodness. He is kind, caring, compassionate, generous and merciful toward all who seek Him. Everything from God is good and all good things are from God. Turn to God, His goodness and love last forever.
The righteous man walks in his integrity; his children are blessed after him.
Fathers, you are responsible for teaching your children about the Lord. Be a spiritual leader by living a life of integrity. Show your children love, discipline when necessary and have compassion on them. Children, obey, respect and honor your father as the Lord commands. Fathers and children, remember that no one is perfect, forgive each other and try to live in peace.
He will have compassion on the poor and needy, and the lives of the needy he will save.
The Lord has compassion on the weak and needy. We must also have a heart of compassion for those in need. If there’s a specific issue that touches your heart, take the next step and make a donation or volunteer your time to an organization that addresses those needs.
When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, “Woman, you are set free from your infirmity.”
Jesus already knows your condition and He is calling you because He has compassion for you. If you need healing come to Jesus, He can heal your mind, body and soul. He can set you free from whatever chains are holding you down.
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.
By showing compassion and kindness to those in need you’re sharing God’s love and mercy. Let everything you do be done as if you are doing it for the Lord. Let God work through you to fill the needs of His people. Don’t wait for someone else to do what God has called you to do.
The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor.
God is generous with us and He expects us to be generous with others as well. We serve a compassionate God and this creates a compassionate heart in us. The awesome thing is that when we give to others from our heart God blesses us even more. We can never out give God.
Do not let kindness and truth leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.
Love is kind and your kindness shows compassion to the people you love. Sometimes we slip into a comfortable state where we take each other for granted, not intentionally, but it happens and we no longer go out of our way to be kind. The Bible tells us over and over that we should be kind to one another. How much more should we intentionally be kind to our loved ones? Let’s choose to go out of our way to show kindness to the people we love.
