Compassion for Others

By   •   November 7   •   Topics:

If you would know the measure of your love for God, just observe your love for your fellowman. Our compassion for others is an accurate gauge of our devotion to God.

Some time ago, with some friends, I went through a museum in San Francisco. Among other things, we saw a collection of instruments of torture which were employed by religious people to force other people to believe as they did. History is largely the record of man’s inhumanity to man.

Got some time? Listen to Billy Graham explain the importance of loving your neighbor.

Prayer for the day

Lord God, fill my heart that I may love with the compassion of Jesus.

    Dear Rev. Graham,
    This was the only place I could find to wish you a happy birthday. I first heard about you in 1954 at a Youth for Christ meeting. I have followed your teaching with great admiration and thanksgiving to God for His gift of you to the world. May He grant you many blessings in this great 99th year.
