Develop a Passion For Compassion…

Develop a Passion For Compassion…

Quote
The value of compassion cannot be overemphasized.  Anyone can criticize.  It takes a true believer to be compassionate.  No greater burden can be borne by an individual than to know no one cares or understands. ~ Arthur H. Stainback ~

Meditation
Showing compassion can change an individuals’ darkest moment to one of light.  It’s easy to get so wrapped up in our own wants and needs, that we overlook the simple blessing which can come from being there for someone else in need.  When you know someone is hurting, take just a little time, listen to them, and show them that you really care.  Speak encouragement to them and comfort them.  It might not only change their perspective, but your own as well.
 
Thought for the day
The quickest way to access God in a meaningful way is to help another less fortunate than you.

Scriptures
But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, long suffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth. ~Psalms 86:15~

And when she had opened it, she saw the child: and, behold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him, and said, This is one of the Hebrews’ children.  And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh’s daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Moses: and she said, Because I drew him out of the water. ~Exodus 2:6,10~

And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick. ~Matthew 14:14~

Finally, all of you should be of one mind, full of sympathy toward each other, loving one another with tender hearts and humble minds.  Don’t repay evil for evil.  Don’t retaliate when people say unkind things about you.  Instead, pay them back with a blessing.  That is what God wants you to do, and he will bless you for it.  ~1 Peter 3:8,9 (NLT)~

About SLAA Tilburg

Wat is seks- en liefdeverslaving? Wij in S.L.A.A. geloven dat seks- en liefdeverslaving een voortschrijdende ziekte is, die niet kan worden genezen maar die, zoals veel ziekten, wel tot staan kan worden gebracht. Zij kan verschillende vormen aannemen – inclusief (maar niet beperkt tot) een dwangmatige behoefte aan seks, extreme afhankelijkheid van één persoon (of meerdere personen), en/of een voortdurend in beslag genomen worden door romantiek, affaires of fantasieën. Er is sprake van een obsessief-dwangmatig patroon, seksueel of emotioneel (of beide), waarin relaties of seksuele activiteiten in toenemende mate destructief geworden zijn voor de loopbaan, het gezinsleven en het gevoel van zelfrespect. Als seks- en liefdeverslaving wordt veronachtzaamd, wordt zij altijd erger. Wanneer wij echter een eenvoudig programma volgen dat voor een reeks van mannen en vrouwen met dezelfde ziekte succesvol is gebleken, kunnen wij herstellen. In S.L.A.A. leren wij de realiteit te accepteren dat wij deze verslaving hebben
