Widow of Nain: Jesus Satisfies Your Heart with Compassion
Genuine compassion is a reflection of overflowing joy.
Think differently about God’s provision for you.
Out of the most severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity. (2 Corinthians 8:2)
God’s riches to us are supplied through us to meet another’s needs.
#1. Compassion is not feeling; it’s doing.
#2. Compassion requires trusting God, not having plenty.
“It is not what you would do with a million, if riches should ever be your lot. But what you are doing at present with the dollar and a quarter you've got."
#3. Compassion gives off the top, not leftovers.
#4. Compassion is personal.
#5. Compassion is proactive about living without so you can give more.
Jesus Christ satisfies our thirst for compassion when we need it. A satisfied heart senses God’s favor and compassion. Let Jesus satisfy your heart with the goodness of His love. Then, live out that love.
