“Have a Compassion Heart!”

“Put on a heart of compassion,” says the wise Apostle. (Col. 3:12)
“Some elect and gracious souls seem, indeed, to have this compassionate heart from the very outset of their lives. Love is their vital breath and their native air. It comes to them naturally and spontaneously . . . as the bird sings simply because it must, as the flower unfolds and cannot help itself, as the fountain bubbles up irresistibly to the surface. Thus the heart of compassion may grow and thrive, even within me! Thus my harsh and proud and critical spirit may spread its black wings and fly away from me, never to return again!”        ~ Alexander Smellie
