#LIGHTtheWORLD, Jesus Showed Compassion

Jesus Showed Compassion and So Can You

The most succinct verse in the Bible tells us simply, “Jesus wept.” And yet it speaks volumes about the compassion Jesus Christ felt for others. Like Him, we can respond to suffering with concern, mercy, and healing.

THREE SIMPLE WAYS TO GET INVOLVED
Participate in a local sub-for-Santa for a family that could use some holiday cheer.
Pray for an opportunity today to show someone compassion.
Try leaving only encouraging comments on social media.
OTHER WAYS TO PARTICIPATE

Find a GoFundMe.com account of a family or person in need and donate to the account.
Don’t be afraid to look a homeless person in the eye and smile.
Volunteer to babysit the children of a single parent so he or she can finish Christmas shopping.
Make a simple sacrifice for someone else, whether it’s giving up a seat on the train or letting someone else have the perfect parking space.

“And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.”
