Compassion is a choice
The real evidence of what we believe about God is found in how we treat people.
Compassion involves sacrifice
Compassion is an act of worship
Authentic worship for God will always be expressed in authentic displays of compassion.
Compassion comes from within
In order for us to be men and women who give life to others we have to live in the truth of who we are; we have to find an inner wholeness, no longer to deny or ignore our wounds but to welcome them and to discover the presence of God in those very places of our own weakness. ~Jean Vanier ~Jean Vanier
