We seek to be a holy people, growing into the likeness of Christ. We know we need to be changed ourselves before we can change the world. We must begin healing in our own brokenness before we can begin to heal broken systems. We have to be freed from sin before we can free others from oppression. This seven-day devotional follows the threads of compassion that are inherent in the character of God and, therefore, essential for the character of the Body of Christ. Each day follows a similar structure of prayer, Scripture, and reflection. The devotions also offer practical steps you can take. May these words encourage and empower you to join God’s redemptive work in our world by living out compassion as a lifestyle.
