Be Compassion

Psalm 90:3,12,14
But humans you return to dust, saying, “Return, you mortals!” Teach us to count our days aright, that we may gain wisdom of heart. Fill us at daybreak with your love, that all our days we may sing for joy.

Look at creation around you. God pours out life-giving Love into all things. All things receive this life-giving Love and then they give back all that they are to the universe…in a constant cycle of giving and receiving. The pattern is shown within the concept of a Trinitarian God. Our Creator’s very nature is a perpetual giving-and-receiving relationship. Are we ready to receive what God graciously gives to us and then to pass it on…freely giving it for the good of the world? Or are we grasping and holding onto the gifts we are given? When we give of ourselves…we join in the Trinitarian, creative process that surrounds us. When we give generously…we will in turn receive generously. When we are in this flow we are truly being our true selves.
