The Lord’s compassion

“When the Lord saw her, his heart overflowed with compassion. ‘Don’t cry!’ he said’” (Luke 7:13, NLT).

In her book The Organic God, Margaret Feinberg talks about what she loves most about Jesus. Her answer was his beauty – the beauty of his love and the redemption he offers us through grace.

My answer is his compassion. When Jesus saw the widow of Nain crying during the funeral procession for her only son, he could have kept walking. After all, she didn’t ask him for help and she certainly wasn’t expecting a miracle. But he saw her tears, walked over to the coffin and gave her son back to her simply because his heart overflowed with compassion. How beautiful are his tears!
