Embrace Compassion
Be kind to one another
Be quick to show love

Ephesians 4:32

“Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. … Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as Christ God forgave you. “

What the world needs now is love, sweet love …
and it needs to be exhibited by showing compassion to one another…
especially to those whose attitudes, beliefs,
and ways of expressing themselves
are different from our own.
Be a compassionate listener!

1 Thessalonians 5:11-14

“Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. We ask you, brothers, to respect those who labor among you and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, and to esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Be at peace among yourselves. And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all.”

What can people do
In a world filled with trouble?
Display compassion!

Try to understand –
Look for commonality.
Rise above the fray.

Don’t join arguments –
Don’t fuel the fires of anger.
Instead, be the frey!

Frey: the god of fertility and dispenser of rain and sunshine.
No, I’m not suggesting you can be a god…
But you can be a dispenser of sunshine, right?
You can take a deep breath, smile, and rain on the fires of hate.

You can see the beauty in others.

Each person has strife.
No one’s life is perfection,
But we’re God’s children.

As such, we are called
To bear each other’s burdens.
Embrace compassion.

This is as valid today as it was the day it was recorded in 1966…
In fact it’s even more true in today’s world.
Don’t you agree?

What the world needs now
Is more love and compassion.
Start spreading it now!

Thanks for visiting JanBeek
See ya tomorrow.

  1. Very peaceful message. This certainly spreads light to the world.

    • Thank you so much! I am so glad you felt the peace God wants to share with you. Bless you for visiting JanBeek and taking time to comment. You bless me with your presence. Have a Fabulous Friday! <3

  2. An essential quality

  3. A beautiful post, Lady Jan. I hope your 2021 is going wonderfully.

    • hak you, {{{Kanika}}} – so far, it’s ok here in Montana – I’m just concerned about our nation. But, I know God is at work, and I trust in His “plans to do good” — I just pray our people can hear Him and move forward in peace. <3

    I thought about Dionne Warwick the minute you began writing about this subject. A good example. We should embrace a tidal wave of love to dispel all the hate in the world. In engineering, when we use CAD to make a 3D representation of the earth’s surface we sometimes employ common sense in a mathematical realm to alter what the computer sees. This is called “flipping faces”. We should go out into the world of hate, and flip faces to love.

    • Yes, Peter, that is exactly what I am aiming to do! Flip face to love, joy, peace, unity … and respond to one another with compassion. It’s a worthy cause! Thanks for visiting and responding with your tidal wave of love. God bless you! <3
