17/49: The Beauty of Your Compassion

Wednesday

Mark 1:41 (TPT) Being deeply moved with tender compassion, Jesus reached out and touched the skin of the leper and told him, “Of course I want you to be healed—so now, be cleansed!

Spiritual wellness depends on helping others. To be too self focused causes us to overlook helping others which deprives us of spiritual nourishment to our mental health.

Ask yourself questions like:  Am I too self focused on my hurts or frustrations to help others? Do I see others as equals, or are they not deserving of my help? Do I express my mercy to others easily or is it uncomfortable?

Today: Forgive others. Make a mental list, or if you feel like you need to write a list of names, do it and then forgive every person on that list. Compassionate mercy never holds forgiveness hostage.
