We don’t know what our next door neighbor is going through. We don’t know what the grocery clerk is going through. We probably don’t understand what trial our mail delivery person is going through. We might not even know exactly what our spouse and children are going through.
But what if we gave just a little more compassion today than we did yesterday? Did you know that that would make a difference, maybe an even bigger difference than you would have ever anticipated?
“And of some have compassion, making a difference:” Jude 1:22
We don’t need to wait until our lives get better to make a difference. We don’t need to wait until we have the resources to make a difference. We don’t need to wait until we’re in a better position or until we get promoted to make a difference.
We can make a difference today — right now, simply by just having compassion; for some, that might mean giving more compassion than we’re used to or comfortable with.
