The Lord Said, Don’t Cry
Scripture: Luke 7: When the Lord saw her, his heart went out to her and he said, “Don’t cry.”
Observation: My Lord’s heart went out to me. He saw me suffer throughout my life because of what I did. He wouldn’t give up on me when I continued to give up on myself. When I opened my eyes to him he embraced me and said “Don’t Cry.”
Application: Remember my Lord’s compassion for me and extend that compassion to others in his name. I am to love others as he commands me and to show his love with the things I do and say.
Prayer: Dear Lord thank you for loving me and not giving up on me. That you would have compassion on this sinner is beyond my comprehension, but I receive it. Show me how to show compassion to others and become this servant you call me to become.
