God put this word on my heart tonight.
I know I have struggles ahead. I know specifically what at least three of them will be. And I know re-training myself to default to compassion is the first step.
After a cursory glance through an online concordance, it looks like “compassion” is a prelude to reconciliation and healing (Luke 15:20; Matthew 20:34; Mark 1:41; Matthew 14:14; et al.) Reconciliation is the challenge I’m least looking forward to.
Let the journey begin.
