Day 15~Compassion~Be Gentle Be Love

compassion

The Practice of Compassion:
* I notice when someone is hurt or needs a friend.
* I feel empathy for the pain of others.
* I take the time to reach out to those who need help.
* I care for others by listening deeply.
* I refrain from judging.
* I have compassion for myself.
* Because of Grace: I treat everyone with dignity and worth
* Because of Grace: If possible, I ask if i may pray for others
* Because of Grace: I pray for others

Compassion is the absence of tunnel vision

Brandon Heath sings movingly about pushing through tunnel vision in “Give Me Your Eyes”


“…give me your love for humanity” Help me avoid the tunnel vision of believing what I think and feel defines the truth.
