We can choose to be compassionate and kind, humble, gentle, patient and forgiving. We can choose it just like we choose what to wear each day.
These things often don't come naturally. Sometimes we can feel hard toward other people's situations because we've dealt with what they're dealing with, even worse things, and maybe no one was there for us. So we think inside that they ought to just suck it up. Deal with it.
This isn't God's attitude. This is never His attitude. Yes, we have to deal with things, but He never keeps compassion from us if we go to Him.
Show compassion today. People are hurting. People need kindness and compassion, someone to just be there and listen. Sometimes people just need their hurts acknowledged. Sometimes people just need to know someone cares.
Be that someone for someone else.
