From the fall of humanity until now, humankind has inflicted suffering on each other. God’s heart is pained when He sees humankind hurt one another. Unfortunately, we have lost track of who we were meant to be and who God is first and foremost. The greatest way the Lord intervened was with the cross, for it showed His heart, provided an example, and offered a solution. But how can we, as a modern society, get past ourselves, be aware of others’ pain, and do something about it?
In a thought-provoking reflection, preacher Eleeo Zamzummin focuses on the first detailed revelation of God’s heart to Moses—in particular, God’s compassion. While examining the deep meaning of compassion and how it is balanced with God’s power and justice, Zamzummin highlights the trail of God’s empathy throughout the Bible and to Christ’s life where compassion was repeatedly demonstrated in His ministry. Additionally, Zamzummin details how humankind, from the beginning, has twisted its role to one God never intended for us while gently reminding all of us how God’s grace holds the key to returning our hearts to the right place.
