Be Compassion

The path of unconditional love is the path to freedom.

Psalm 40:7-9

Sacrifice and offering you do not want; you opened my ears. Holocaust and sin-offering you do not request; so I said, “See; I come with an inscribed scroll written upon me. I delight to do your will, my God.

Jesus also expressed this sentiment when he said: “Go and learn the meaning of the words, ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ I did not come to call the righteous but sinners” (Matthew 9:13).

Of course, he was referring back to Hosea 6:6.

According to Jesus, God’s will is that we be merciful.

God doesn’t need your sacrifice unless that sacrifice is making you more merciful, compassionate and forgiving.

What are you being asked to let go of…as in sacrifice…so that you are freed up to show compassion in all that you do?
