Compassion

Most of us have heard of the shortest verse in the Bible – “Jesus wept.”  The interesting thing about this verse is not that it is the shortest verse in the Bible, rather it is that although Jesus knew he was just hours from his his terrible death, he did not weep for himself.  He was weeping for what he saw as he looked out over the people.  He had compassion for the pain and suffering that the people were experiencing.  What about us?  Do we care about others or are we merely focused on our own perceived problems.  Let’s try something new and focus outside of ourselves and see what we can do for others.  I promise that you will find that the solutions to many of our problems lie in helping others.

Just a thought!
