Compassion- feeling of deep sympathy and sorrow for another who is stricken by misfortune, accompanied by a strong desire to alleviate the suffering.

When you see someone who is struggling, stricken with misfortune 
do you;

  • cringe and avoid them.........
  • wonder what they did to deserve this trial........
  • preach to them about how to fix their problems......

do you;

  • show compassion....
  • listen......
  • pray with them.....
  • put your arms around them (even if they aren't clean)

I love this scripture
When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled, 34 And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see. 35 Jesus wept.
I have heard sermons preached about how Jesus was saddened that they doubted Him and His ability to "fix the problem". 
Jesus groaned in the spirit (small s, that means his human spirit).  I believe He groaned because He felt the pain they had from loosing a loved one.  He knew this was a lesson they had to learn to fully become reliant on Him, but He hurt that they had to go through this heart ache.

Jesus does not "want" us to go through hard trials.  He does know it is necessary sometimes for us to get the full affect of relying on Him.....
He LOVES us,
He loves YOU......
His spirit groans for you in the middle of your tribulation, He is in heaven cheering you on to make it through.  He knows what we need to go through to be able to grow up into ALL be ready and strong to testify for Him.

Will you show someone compassion today?
Can you lay aside your judgement and feel the pain of another human and reach out and pray?

Calm down about things that don't matter,

Picking your battles wisely is a life quality that everyone should adopt. Ask your self:      why does this bother me      what will happen if I don't respond      will my opinion change the outcome      can I find a positive way to express the way this makes me I feel       When serious things do happen (and they will) over the top responses will only serve to hurt you mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, and  you will alienate people after time........... Discipline your thought life!   Don't allow every minor irritation make you irrational! Try focusing on  the positive and meditating on the blessings of God and watch the small problems fade from sight......... Philipians 4:8 Finally, brethren.....whatsoever things that are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
