Compassion

Compassion

 

  • Being sensitive to the suffering of others
  • Offering care and concern
  • Noticing a need
  • Always listening and being interested in others

 

‘ When Jesus saw the crowd his heart was filled with compassion, because they were like sheep without a shepherd.’

Mark 6:34

 

Noticing a need is perhaps one of the most important definitions of compassion. Sometimes we can be so busy with the things that we want to do, the games that we want to play and the people that we want to speak to that we fail to notice when someone else needs our help.

Sometimes, we even ignore people on purpose who need our help. We think that helping will change our plans or hold us up.

Look for people in need. Perhaps that person is sad or maybe going through a difficult time in his or her life.
