Shout for joy, you heavens; rejoice, you earth; burst into song, you mountains! For the Lord comforts his people and will have compassion on his afflicted ones.
We all have needed or will need comfort and compassion at some point or another. The world attempts to keep you content but the only place to find real comfort and compassion is in the Lord. Pour out your heart in prayer and the Lord will give you the comfort and compassion you long for.
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.

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.
