Thought of the Day September 3, 2021 Be compassionate

By 9:24 AM

As God is unconditionally compassionate to us, we are called to be compassionate to others. In his compassion God shows us mercy not judgement, understanding, not rejection. Many times what blocks us from being truly compassionate is our tendency to judge others from our perspective, without knowing the full picture. We tend to compare the other to ourselves. But our roads are different. The truth is "There go I but for the grace of God." God calls us to die to this process, He calls us to see the other with the heart of God. Someone has said: "Compassion can never coexist with judgment because judgment creates the distance, the distinction, that prevents us from really being with the other." Ask for the grace to have a compassionate heart.
