life, liberty, and the pursuit of Jesus
The convenience of compassion.
What is compassion? Mr. Webster says, ” sympathetic consciousness of others’ distress together with a desire to alleviate it”. I believe that last part is key. Along with the desire to alleviate we should have an action plan in place of what exactly are we going to do about it. It doesn’t have to take a lot of our time, with 4 kids 12 and under who has a lot of time, but I do think we all need to do are part to make the world a better place and stop being so selfish.
As a father and husband the “others” that are of most importance to me are my wife and children. When their distress is taken care of then I can move on. For now the priority is my own house. God has given me responsibility to take care of these 5 others first.
