Compassion

Everyday at workplace we have a short sharing and prayer before we begin our work. Today, the sharing struck a chord in my heart. Compassion.

The Cambridge dictionary defines it as a strong feeling of sympathy and sadness for the suffering or bad luck of others and a wish to help them.

Over the weeks, many things have taken place and many people have been quick to criticise and judge. If only, we could have more compassion in action. It reminds me of a quote I once read,

Compassion is at the heart of every little thing we do. It is the dearest quality we possess, yet all too often it can be cast aside with consequences too tragic to speak of. To lose our compassion, we lose what it is to be human.

Can I encourage you my dear brothers and sisters to show compassion to all those who are in need? Let’s not be too quick to judge and condemn those who make mistakes. We can live “on earth as it is in heaven”, by more compassion in action.

Another point that I would like to make is showing compassion to your loved and close ones first. Sometimes it is much easier to show compassion to strangers but not to our own family, relatives and friends. Why? Because of our expectations. As the saying goes, it starts at home. Can I encourage you to show compassion starting with our loved ones? If you are blessed by this and would like to sow a seed of compassion in the lives of many, can I request you to share this post and acts of compassion that you encounter with the hashtag, #compassioninaction

Thank you and God bless

Love

  1. Hi there! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I had to ask. Does operating a well-established blog such as yours take a massive amount work? I’m completely new to blogging but I do write in my journal everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

    1. Hi! Hmmm “massive amount of work” is very subjective. I would say you just need to write as though you are “talking to people” so that makes everything much easier.

  2. This is really interesting, You are a very skilled blogger. I have joined your feed and look forward to seeking more of your wonderful post. Also, I have shared your web site in my social networks!

  3. excellent publish, very informative. I ponder why the other experts of this sector do not notice this. You should continue your writing. I’m sure, you have a great readers’ base already!
