God of Heaven and Earth,
You are compassionate and merciful! You are good to everyone, both sinner and saint. You shower compassion on ALL Your creation!
Lord Jesus, thank You for showing me compassion! When I think about the cross, THAT should have been me!! The Law demands a blood sacrifice; it demands death! You gave up Your throne. You gave up being omnipotent. You gave up command of Heaven's Army. For what? For me! You were mocked. Hunted down. You walked dusty roads. Then You were tortured. Nailed to a wooden cross like a criminal. You were (are) innocent! I am the guilty one! I'm the criminal! You took my place! Thank You for Your compassion!
Father, be good to _____. We know You will!! Show Your compassion on _____, for he/she is Your creation! Oh, God! May we each be instruments of Your compassion. May we be a light to those stumbling around in darkness. May we be joy makers to those who are drowning in sorrow. May we be Your arms of love to everyone! May we be Jesus to someone today. In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen
Scripture Reference: Psalm 145:8-9 (NLT)
