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.

    Thank you so much for these wonderful devotionals. They have been opening my heart and mind to a better understanding of God’s word. They have also helped me to return to studying the Word for better understanding and closeness to our Lord Jesus and especially how it (the Bible) is so relevant today.
