For the Lord your God is living among you.
He is a mighty savior.
He will take delight in you with gladness.
With his love, he will calm all your fears.
He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.
In the same way, though we are many, we are one body in union with Christ, and we are all joined to each other as different parts of one body.
Today be compassionate to those around you. God gives us all compassion and kindness – not because we deserve it, but because He loves us. Do the same for others.
For if we truly believe that we all make up the same body, then it will only hurt us if we cut each other down. It will only hurt us if we seek revenge. It will only hurt us if we continually get angry and lose patience with one another.
Whether people deserve it or not – give them compassion. Love them for who they are and love them where they are.
