DBR Thought ~ You Get What You Deserve

“My joy is gone; grief is upon me; my heart is sick within me.” – Jeremiah 8:18

When is the last time you felt that way toward someone? When someone you love is going down the wrong path, or better still consider someone you dislike who is going down the wrong path. Do you stop and pray for them with true compassion or do you say “Well, they deserve what they get.” I look at how stiff necked these people have always been yet Jeremiah rightly reflects God’s heart. He is saddened to the point of a sick heart. I pray that the Holy Spirit would convict me every second of every day to have His compassion and patience for those I love and give me an extra heaping of that same compassion and patience for those I dislike.
