A Compassionate Heart

dotOur Thoughts:

Little children are very compassionate, by nature. They want to give and share everything they have. I was one of those kind of children.

A neighborhood girl, who was a friend of mine, was having a birthday. She was only a little younger than I was, and I was invited to her birthday party. Whooping cough was going around, and it was _visiting_ our house at the time. I was unable to go the party, but Mother told me to get some of the new socks she had bought and take them to my friend for her birthday. Well, being the 'giving' kid I was, I misunderstood "some", and took ALL of them. Needless to say, Mother had to go talk to the Mother, since, back in those days, we didn't have lots to give. But, that was the child in me - the giving nature.

I've noticed, in my grandchildren, that same giving nature. The little boys want to share everything they have with you, if they think you want or need it. The older grandson and granddaughter want to give more than they really have the money to give, and don't understand yet that you have to show a little restraint. But, still, that's a child's nature, to give, regardless.

We are told, through scripture, to have compassion for one another, and to love with the love of God. Children are so quick to love and are quick to give, whatever it may be. These children are showing the love of a compassionate God, who gave His Son, because He loved us so much.

dotGod's Thoughts:

1 Peter 3:8 Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:

dotOur Cup:

Heavenly Father, help us be more like you, to love and show compassion as you do. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
