Loving is Caring

On day five of 14 Days of Valentines, I want to talk about a character trait of my husband that is very wonderful.  That is his compassion.  I guess it comes with the territory of being a pastor and having a pastor's heart, but it is a wonderful thing to have.  He cares about people.

He cares when they are his loved ones and they are hurting.  Here with his aunt who recently
broke both her knees.

He care about the concerns and problems of even the smallest of his congregation:

He cares and offers a little of encouragement when that is all that is needed:

He cares about the well being of his family:

He cares about special times in people's lives.


He cares enough to lend a shoulder to lean on when a wife is weary!

The most important thing he cares about are the souls of men.  As a matter of fact he has given his life to show people how they can make sure their soul is going to heaven.  This verse describes how strongly he believes in the importance of this matter:  Jude 1:22 "And of some have compassion, making a difference:"  He puts an emphasis on that in our church in encouraging our people to reach our community, but also on reaching out to the world in a world wide mission program.  He cares enough that he himself has gone on several mission trips to distant lands to share the gospel with those in other countries.

He has always had a very compassionate heart and I love that about him.  I wish I could tell you all the ways and times he has displayed compassion; there's been many, many times.    There's Someone else who has compassion for us.  My husband pictures that Someone in the compassion which he shows.  He inspires me to be more compassionate; he inspires me to be more like Christ.  I love that about him!

Thank you for joining me for Day Five.  You can click here for Day six of 14 Days of Valentines.
