1 Peter 3:8
Webster’s online dictionary defines compassion as: “the humane quality of understanding the suffering of others, accompanied by a profound need to do something about it.” The scriptures testify to the compassion Jesus had for people. Luke 7:13 says, Jesus’ heart overflowed with compassion for a widow who lost her son. And Mark 8:1, of the 4,000 with nothing to eat, Jesus himself says, “I feel compassion for these people”. Like those in Jesus’ time, many today are suffering in similar situations and need people with the compassion of Christ intervene.
That’s where the Alliance Compassion Fund comes in. It addresses one-time, immediate, compassion funding needs not already covered under other ministries, and supports Justice and Compassion initiatives in Canada and around the world. In 2017, employees of a Christian radio ministry in Guinea were cared for in a crucial time of need. It also provided a greenhouse and chicken coop for a children’s orphanage in a central Asian country.*

Pray that as we support similar acts of compassion, recipients will experience the peace, love, and, dignity that God desires for them.
