Topic: Be Sensitive [Billy Graham Devotional 25 March 2020]
If a person isn’t loving and kind, it shows that he doesn’t know God—for God is love. — 1 John 4:8 (TLB)
Jesus wept tears of compassion at the graveside of a friend. He mourned over Jerusalem because as a city it had lost its appreciation of the things of the Spirit. His great heart was sensitive to the needs of others. To emphasize the importance of man’s love for men, He revised an old commandment to make it read, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart . . . and thy neighbor as thyself.” This generation is rough and tough. I heard a little boy boasting one day about how tough he was. He said, “On the street I live on, the farther out you go the tougher they get, and I live in the last house.” Until you have learned the value of compassionately sharing others’ sorrow, distress, and misfortune, you cannot know real happiness.
Prayer for the day:
Lord Jesus, sensitize my heart with Your compassion so that I may truly love.
