Showing Compassion

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

Ephesians 4:32 – Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ, God forgave you.

Lamentations 3:22/23 – Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning, great is your faithfulness.

Colossians 3:12 –  Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.

Psalm 103:13 – As a father shows compassion to his children, so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him.

Nehemiah 9:17 – They refused to listen and failed to remember the miracles you performed among them. They became stiff-necked and in their rebellion appointed a leader in order to return to their slavery. But you are a forgiving God, gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love. Therefore you did not desert them…

Psalm 34:18 – The Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
