In Others’ Words: Compassion
And there is an abundance of hope in Lisa Harper’s statement. Compassion encompassing mistakes … even more, Christ’s miraculous compassion obliterating my worst mistake.
So much hope. How can I grasp it?
Sometimes I forget this unfathomable truth. I forget the amazing should-bring-me-to-my-knees reality that I am forgiven. That I don’t have to live with my mistakes. I don’t have to live believing I am some sort of mistake.
When you read a truth like that — Christ’s compassion is greater than my worst mistake — maybe you’re tempted to drag that worst mistake out into the open and say, “Really? Greater than this?!”
But we’re not supposed to focus on our mistake. No and no and no. We’re supposed to focus on Christ’s compassion.
What a great way to end the week. Even better, what a great way to live each day: immersing ourselves in God’s compassion.
In Your Words: It’s not about your mistakes. It’s about his compassion. When have you been able to embrace Christ compassion most freely?
