April 15 Echoes of Eternity
But whoso hath this world’s goods, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?
I John 3:17
This is my word today: compassion. Pray for compassion! You have an unmerciful heart. You rejoice at the discomfiture of those who have offended you. You place yourself “above” them in your mind, forgetting who and what you are in truth. Your harsh and unmerciful attitude puts a wall—a strong barrier between us. Little wonder that you are then plagued with fear and anxiety. I am your peace; I am the place of tranquility and quietness—but an unmerciful heart cannot dwell there.
