Notice how Jesus practices compassion when his friend, Lazarus, dies. First he aligns himself with God even though that delays his arrival, then giving each sister exactly what she needs: tears for Mary, hope of resurrection for Martha.
God, who gives us models of compassion,
like author Bryan Stevenson,
guide us to see we’re all better
than the worst thing we’ve done.
Read again in the Gospel of John, 11:1-44, the account of Jesus bringing Lazarus back to life.
