First off let me tell you how much I L-O-V-E our church. Such an amazing place to worship. Our pastor's talk to us and not over our heads. God is really doing magnificent things here. If we were to ever leave Wichita, this would be my most missed part of this place.
Currently at Newspring we are in a series called "Lost in Love."
Today's talk was about compassion and empathy.
3 things we need to do as Christians:
1. Have the willingness to move towards the needy and not away from it. We need to be first responders. When action happens, be there for it, both listening and doing.
2. We need to practice the power of empathy. Have a tender heart and put yourself in the other persons shoes.
3. You MUST answer the call to action. The Lord puts you in situations for a reason. He knows your strengths and abilities.
Don't talk about it, be about it!
