Daily devotional: A heart of compassion

Scripture
Besides everything else, I face daily the pressure of my concern for all the churches. Who is weak, and I do not feel weak? Who is led into sin, and I do not inwardly burn?
2 Corinthians 11:28-29 NIV

Observation
It is my natural tendency to be cold towards the plight of others, not compassionate. I want to be as Paul was, who could even go so far as to list his deep compassion as one of his sufferings!

Application
Pray for the Holy Spirit to continue molding me to be more like Him, and pray for a sensitive heart towards others. Seek to change and become increasingly more like the God I serve!

Prayer
Lord, I come to You with gladness in my heart for all that You are doing and for the rich inheritance You are sharing with me. But I want to be more like You. I want my heart to burn for those whose situations, decisions, and plights make Your heart burn. Make me sensitive to these things and grow my heart to be like Yours. Thank you for sanctifying me as I live this amazing life in You! I love you!
