I mean, when was the last time I stopped to help a guy on the side of the road change a tire. Nope, sorry. I'm busy, busy, dreadfully busy, you have no idea what I have to do...(wow, Vegietales flashback). It's easy to let the demands of our everyday life keep us from showing the compassion of Christ to those around us.
My challenge: Think about this the next time you see a single mom with three kids trying to push her groceries to her car? Or maybe even stop to let someone walk across the street in front of you so they can get into the store. Or maybe the greatest challenge to all of us...take the time to slow down and just listen AND act on the direction of the Lord in all of our situations. Show some compassion today.
