March 5–One-Anothering – Compassion for One Another


Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; 1 Peter 3:8 [NKJV]

A “One Anothering” Thought
Compassion means:
a feeling of deep sympathy
sorrow for
mercy for

Paul says that we believers should be thinking alike and sharing in each other’s sorrows.
We should feel deep sympathy for our brothers and sisters in the Lord when they are going through difficulties.
We should show mercy and have a strong desire to help them in some way.

Stop and think about someone to whom you might need to show compassion to today.
Who comes to mind that needs some sympathy?
If God brings someone to mind or across your path today, take the time to listen to them and encourage them.
Give them a hug or tell them you care.
Offer to pray for them or help them in some way.
You will be blessed as you do so, for we have a very compassionate Lord, and He wants us to be like Him.

But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them,
because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.
Matthew 9:36 [NKJV]
