The LORD’S loving kindnesses indeed never cease, For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22-23, New American Standard Bible)
Each sunrise brings a beautiful freshness. Wet with mountain dew or dry with desert dust, there is something special about greeting a new day. Yesterday’s despair is erased by today’s hope. New opportunities are waiting. A chance to call, write an encouraging note, send an e-mail, or pray for a friend are gifts from the heart that can brighten the sender as well as the recipient. Remembering God’s loving kindness gives us a new measure of daily compassion. Accept today’s fresh start as a gift and share it with others.
Prayer:Eternal God, renew in me the compassion for others that You give to me daily. Let me respond gently to those who are abrupt. Help me to be kind to those who are unkind to me. By sharing Your compassion with others, I will be more like You. When You give me a fresh start each day, I will renew my compassion for others. Amen.
