God's Compassion

Give generously to [the poor] and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to. There will always be poor people in the land. Therefore I command you to be open handed toward your brothers and toward the poor and needy in your land. Deut 15:10-11.

This stood out to me in my quiet time this morning. Jesus talked often about taking care of orphans and widows. We have a very compassionate God. But usually, he shows his compassion through His people. Maybe he wants to show compassion through you . . . or me today.
