The Great Compassion


God’s love and acceptance are available each moment.

Luke 9:2-3

He sent them to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal [the sick]. He said to them, “Take nothing for the journey.”


Jesus sent his followers to proclaim the “kingdom of God.”

And what does that mean?

We know that Jesus stated his mission when he read from the prophet Isaiah in the synagogue: “He has anointed me to bring glad tidings to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free” (Luke 4:18).

When those things occur…you have peace, freedom, compassion, healing and justice.

That’s the “kingdom of God.”

That’s what his followers were called to proclaim.

So are we.

The kingdom of God is a state of being where compassion reigns…not power.

It’s when everything and everyone belongs.

We proclaim it whenever we channel God’s love to others to bring them healing and wholeness.

For that to happen…we need to let go of our attachments to all the stuff we falsely believed would bring us happiness.

All you really need is God’s unconditional Love…and it’s already inside you ready to be tapped.

So you won’t need to bring anything else on your journey.
