Fresh Start

The LORD’S loving kindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning… (Lamentations 3:22-23 New American Standard Bible)

Every sunrise brings freshness. Wet with dew or dry with dust, there is something special about greeting a new day. Yesterday’s despair can be erased with today’s hope. New opportunities are waiting. A chance to call, write an encouraging note, send an email, or pray for a friend are gifts from the heart that can brighten the sender as well as the recipient.

Follow God’s example of new compassion every morning.

Prayer: Eternal God, renew in me today the compassion for others. Soften my response to those who are abrupt or demanding. Help me to be kind to those who are unkind. Teach me compassion so I will be more like You. Amen.
