Last week when the earthquake took place in Haiti I was not far away. I was on vacation a couple hundred miles away on a cruise. A couple days later we came as close as 50 miles to the nation of Haiti. It was full of irony. Here we were on a cruise ship with more food than we could even eat and just 50 miles away was a horrific scene of tragedy, disaster, hunger, thirst, and loss. To me it was a picture of how truly blessed I am not just that day but everyday!
Let's show compassion.
Here are a couple quotes from a book I am currently reading called "Primal" by Mark Batterson:
"Minds often remain closed to truth until hearts have been opened by compassion."
"Compassion is the ultimate apologetic. There is no defense against it."
