Compassion is the next trait we look at in our series. Compassion is defined as, "to recognize the suffering of others, then take action to help". Lisa takes us through 1 John 3:16-20 to illustrate what compassion looks like in the New Testament. The passage tells us to not only tell our brothers and sisters in Christ that we love them, but also, let our actions communicate that we love them. "Dear children, let's not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions" (1 Jn 3:18). Compassion should drive us to action, it speaks the Gospel without words and translates our beliefs and values to our culture.
