Faith Child – Walk a mile in my shoes

Compassion – Jesus wept

Lazarus had to die so Jesus could show his compassion to Lazarus’ two sisters. There was no doubt he felt like Mary and Martha felt and He wept along with them. How often have we cried with someone else? Have we been hard of heart and not following the Lord’s example when we should have shown compassion?

Yet He knew that Lazarus would be risen from the dead.

Things will get better – for doesnt the Word say – weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. Psalm 30:5. It is pulling through the night that one has to go through before morning light, when one needs  compassion from a brother or sister. Give, show compassion and walk a mile in that friend’s shoes and weep if necessary with him/her.

Let us remind one another of  2 Corinthians 4:17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.

So let us help each other to persevere for James 1:12 tells us “Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.”

Let us encourage one another James 1:2 2Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. 4Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

James 5:11 As you know, we consider blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job’s perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy.

As He is compassionate, let us follow after Him and walk a mile in our brother’s/sister’s shoes… and show grace and mercy to the one in need.

You will have your turn when you need  to receive compassion from others.

  5. To walk a mile in another’s shoes, we first have to walk in Jesus’ shoes, for we of ourselves, in our own strength, would be incapable of showing His love and compassion. Only as we commune with Him and draw from Him, allowing Him to flow through us to others, are we able to help those in need. May we always be willing to be used by Him.

    It is amazing He really lived as a human being who knew how to feel pain and sorrow and bereavement, leaving us an example to follow by His reactions. He was not God only, He became man and dwelt among us. How precious He is.

    Everytime I would fall into judging an elementary school classmate for some sort of foolishness, my elders at home would remind me, “Jesus wept” and that is what I should do and extend a hand of friendship and Christian guidance to that classmate.
