Life-changing Compassion

Something I heard made me think more closely about the compassion I show toward others.

The speaker was talking about the life-changing compassion of God and Jesus, but then took it more to applications in everyday life. The ability for each of us to change someone’s life in big and small ways through acts of compassion.

In my role as a Crisis Counselor with the Crisis Text Line, I hope I am projecting life-changing or even life-saving compassion to each texter with whom I interact. I like to think I’m making a difference, even if it’s simply by being there or listening.
