Scripture: Luke 7:13 When the Lord saw her, his heart went out to her and he said, “Don’t cry.”
Observation: Whenever I read about Christ’s compassion I think of how he had compassion for me. I deserved death, was suffering and wanted to die, but he had compassion on me. He guided me to him and showed me the way, staying by my side. He comforted me and said don’t cry. Today he is with me always leading me through this life, showing me how to comfort others and showing me to have his heart.
Application: To have a heart for the hurting. To follow the path God has shown me and to use the testimony of his love in my life, to comfort others. To use the gifts God has given me of counseling, loving and giving to fulfill the purpose he has for my life.
Prayer: Dear Lord I thank you for not giving up on me. That your heart went out to me. Use me now and the rest of this life you have given me to reach those you place in my path.
