Kind and Compassionate

Image of two people's hands held in prayer with the words "be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. Ephesians 4:32"

“Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.” Ephesians 4:32

This kind of sums up the whole month of loving your neighbor. I recently read a poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and I thought of this verse. Being kind, loving and forgiving is never wasted - you may not know how it affects someone, but there is ALWAYS an impact.

Our Lord has already poured grace on us over-abundantly, so much that our cup overflows, and He continues to do so. “But I tell you to love your enemies and pray for anyone who mistreats you. Then you will be acting like your Father in heaven. He makes the sun rise on both good and bad people. And He sends rain for the ones who do right and for the ones who do wrong.” ~Matthew 5:44-45


The Arrow and the Song by Henry W. Longfellow

I shot an arrow into the air, It fell to earth, I knew not where; For, so swiftly it flew, the sight could not follow it in its flight.

I breathed a song into the air. It fell to earth, I knew not where; For who has sight so keen and strong that it can follow the flight of song?

Long, long afterward, in an oak I found the arrow, still unbroke; And the song, from beginning to end, I found again in the heart of a friend.
