(1 Chronicles 29:11 NLT) … Everything in the heavens and on earth is yours, O LORD, and this is your kingdom. We adore you as the one who is over all things.
(2 Corinthians 9:11 NIV) You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.
(Mark 1:40-1 NLT) A man with leprosy came and knelt in front of Jesus, begging to be healed. “If you are willing, you can heal me and make me clean,” he said. Moved with compassion, Jesus reached out and touched him. “I am willing,” he said. “Be healed!”
√ I am moved by COMPASSION.
Com-pas-sion: AWARENESS of the misfortune of another accompanied with the ACTION to relieve it.
√ See life through the LENS OF ETERNITY. *This is the beginning of COMPASSION
(Matthew 6:19-20 NLT) “Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal.
(Matthew 6:21 NIV) For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
√ GENEROSITY leads. HEART follows.
(Matthew 9:35-36 NIV) Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.
√ Experience GOD’S LOVE for myself.
(Luke 7:47 NIV) Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven–as her great love has shown. But whoever has been forgiven little loves little.”
(Matthew 10:42 NIV) And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is my disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward.”
(James 2:15-7 MSG) For instance, you come upon an old friend dressed in rags and half-starved and say, “Good morning, friend! Be clothed in Christ! Be filled with the Holy Spirit!” and walk off without providing so much as a coat or a cup of soup—where does that get you? Isn’t it obvious that God-talk without God-acts is outrageous nonsense?
