What is the biblical definition of compassion?
The meaning of compassion is to recognize the suffering of others, then take action to help. … The Bible defines the meaning of compassion in several ways. We are to “speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves … defend the rights of the poor and needy” (Proverbs 31:8-9, NIV).
Jesus = C O M P A S S I O N
Here are JUST a few examples of Jesus and compassion – Matthew 8:3, 8:16-17, 9:36, 11:28-30, 14:14,15:32, 18:11-13 and 20:34.
Take time to read them. Ask yourself, can I show more compassion? Is there anything that moves me to ACTION?
What do you do when the people CANNOT come to you? That was the question that haunted my mind. Every time I drove past a work camp with all those little metal tin rooms. I would see children playing in the middle of all the construction equipment and I would wonder – do they go to school, do they get medical care, who are they, how can I help? These were questions that always went unanswered day by day.
Not going to lie, I dislike that name.
It is hard for me to even say it at times. I use the term impoverished communities. They too also have those little tin shacks (some have bricks) however these children do get to go to school (not all, but most).They still live in areas that NEED help. This leads to compassion – the kind that moves you to do something about what you see.
God gave me(Tina)a vision and I shared that vision with someone else. That someone else also saw the vision and felt led to share with someone else – that someone else brought the means to make the vision come to LIFE!
