Compassion Equals Walking with God by Ed Elliot

Compassion Equals Walking with God
“When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them because they were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd”  (Matthew 9:36).
“So Jesus had compassion and touched their eyes.  And immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed Him” (Matthew 20:34).
“And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth His hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean” (Mark 1:41).      
We learn from studying Jesus’ life that when you are moved by compassion you are walking with God!  The way God designed us to walk in compassion is by experience.  When we know and experience His love for us, we are empowered to show others the same compassion we have come to know through experience.
So walking with God is living a life of compassion that first comes from knowing firsthand the compassion God has shown you.  You can’t give to others what you haven’t received for yourself.  
Get to know and trust in God’s compassion for you; it is life-changing!
