Verse of the Day

“The remnant in the province, who survived the exile, are in great trouble and disgrace. [HCSB] Nehemiah 1:3a

The expression of compassion is an action. To have compassion on a neighbour in need of help is not just in words, but requires one to do something; anything which you feel will enliven their burden. We are told here that when Nehemiah asked about home, even though he received some bad news, it didn’t just end there. He did something (vs. 4). Sometimes, you may feel that the little you could do will be of no use to the person in need, but you will never know the length or the depth of that help / how far it could go until you’ve tried it. You never know, you just may be the Nehemiah that someone near you needs to encourage their faith in #Jesus in their hour of need.
