9th C of Character

 

Compassionate

• Affectionate benevolence to an afflicted person.
• Empathetic sympathy for others in any distress.
• This has nothing to do with you … but others.
• Who and whom in Nain fit the matter (Luke 7:11-13)?
• Do you grasp, "As bound with them," in (Hebrews 13:3)?
• Do you have bowels of mercy for those suffering?
• When in authority, do you love to forgive others?
• Can you overlook faults, knowing others' frame?
• Think … others have lives … greater than yours!
• Stop thinking and talking about yourself … now!

“And it came to pass the day after, that he went into a city called Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and much people. Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her. 13 And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not.”

Luke 17:11-13

“Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.”

Hebrews 13:3
