Compassion for Others
Displaying a servant heart. Seeking to make a difference.
When we recognize others are in need our heartfelt response should be to reach out to offer help. Showing love and kindness to our neighbor will always be our best response.
Life is fragile. Be an inspiration in someone's life today. Let others know you sincerely care and share with them that hope does exist. This promise makes each day much brighter.
God has shown us His way. Each of us can bring joy into the lives of others by sharing the joy we experience. This joy creates an opportunity for us to make our world a better place. Sharing this message begins with each one of us.
Each day we should look for opportunities to brighten someone's day. We can reach out in some way to lift another's burden or to provide help needed. We can simply show kindness to others by sharing a smile. All of these are acts of compassion. Touching the lives of others is our purpose for living. May we realize the positive impacts we each can make and allow compassion to grow into even greater ways to serve.

"Dear Compassion for Others,
Thank you for coming out to the Church of God Children’s Home recently. You brought not only smiles to our children’s lives but also filled their stomachs with food that they LOVE! What kid doesn’t love Chick-fil-A and cookies?? And then you out-did yourselves by adding an amazing gift card for each kiddo on campus!! Wow!! I know from my own kids how much they appreciate it and how much they are excited to have something that is uniquely theirs and for them to pick out school clothing with, I can only imagine how the other kiddos feel. You have brought happiness and joy to our campus through your gift of generosity and we want to take this moment to say thank you and ask God to bless you. We also ask God to meet your greatest need in your life, your families’ lives and in your ministry. We ask God to give back 10 fold what you have given to our Home. Again, thank you for your generosity and time.
May God Bless You
Numbers 6:23-27 “
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all of your soul and with all of your mind," and "you shall love your neighbor as yourself...
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
God's word tell us "Love your neighbor as yourself ...."
"God has given us two hands, one to receive with and the other to give with."
