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.
Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
Tomorrow is the first day of a new year, it’s a chance for a new beginning. Put the past behind you and start this new year with your focus on God. He loves you and His compassion for you never fails. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and see that He is good.
What does the Lord require of you? To do justice, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.
This is what God wants, for you to treat others fairly, behaving morally righteous, showing compassion and forgiveness even to those who don’t deserve it. Be respectful, gentle, and live modestly, not thinking too highly of yourself. You don’t always have to behave the way you feel, but you should always behave in a way that pleases God.
When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.
We are called to be like Christ – gentle, caring, loving and compassionate. Everywhere you look there are people that need help, especially right now with all these natural disasters happening. People are hurting and need help, it’s up to us as Christians to find a way to do what we can to help them.
The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in mercy.
Where would we be if not for God’s grace and compassion, not to mention his patience and mercy? We serve a mighty God who can do anything and yet, even though we don’t deserve any of his goodness, he loves us. Not because of who we are but because of who God is, we can face tomorrow.
