Compassion For the Weak

Now that I have vented, 😉 I have to say God has been dealing with me about having compassion for the weak. I do have compassion, but it’s hard to do when you become the subject of false accusation. But sometimes that is the test. Not easy to do.

sp-compassion-med-633x474Lately I have been feeling like someone that I am connected to really dislikes me. I mean I think the person hates me and it makes it hard for me to show love and compassion. Whenever I try to show love, it’s been twisted and thrown in my face.

Often when people have had difficult upbringings, they have a hard time with relationships because they don’t trust anybody. I understand that because I know my relationship with my father greatly affected me.

I must admit that I am not weak. Sorry, but I make no excuses for that. I have many moments of weakness, but you can not label me a weak person and that is why God is dealing with me about having compassion for the weak.

Ephesians 4:32

New International Version (NIV)

32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

  1. Like spirits are always drawn to each other, it lowers their sense of conviction, desensitizes them to their poison….
    Having compassion for them….It is tough and I have learned that acceptance of their weakness is the first step to forgiving them for the attack their weakness causes us. Secondly to accept that they are that way and won’t be changing from our direction, but their awareness alone, which opens up a sense of compassion from us (or even pity). Sometimes compassion is given best from a distance, keeping in close companionship is not a testimony of forgiveness or compassion. Truthfully in our hearts we know we have every right to be angry for their deeds against us, but also recognise that we might also be that way if God had not chosen to reveal His truths to us and help us be strong in our conviction and faithful pursuit of righteousness. It has taken me 3 years to accept someone in my family like this, I may even still slip from time to time. I am accused of being bitter and trying to get my own back by standing firm against their attempts to infiltrate my life beyond my well established boundaries, but I assure you it is not from a bitter reaction of revenge, but a protective measure for me & my children. If people want to spin a nasty story about us they will whether we are close to them or distant, I have found distance helps to blow have less impact. The best of God’s blessings be upon you!
