Where is Compassion?

     In a day where people are vilified before they ever get to their grave I have to ask myself, “Where is compassion?”   This week quite a few clebrities passed away.  Each one of them had a troubled life in their own way in spite of having riches and fame.  In fact, all three died in financial distress if compared to what their wealth was at one time.   If you listen to the reports they will say something like this person was loved all over the world and contributed so much to their trade but  in their next breath they begin to cut their life into bits and pieces.  I have never seen so many ugly comments on the twitters, facebooks, media, etc., just minutes after a person is announced as dead, so I ask you, “Where is Compassion?”  In the Bible when someone would ask Jesus to be healed he didn’t say, “What did you do to get in this condition and then I will tell you if I can heal you or not.  I once heard Franklin Graham talking of the stigma of  HIV and he said if an aids patient asked Jesus for healing would He ask him how he acquired aids first and then base the healing on the answers?  Most of the time he would just say something like, “if you believe “.  I guess my thoughts are kind of scattered in this writing but once again I say, “Where is compassion?”   This is a  world where people are used for cash cows and then when they can’t produce any longer they are chewed up and spit out.    All three of these people lived their own private Hell  but  only God knows what they are guilty of . (and what we are guilty of) 

     In closing  I say, “What would people say just minutes after yours and my life was over?”  Do we want to know?  Once again, “Where is Compassion?”

When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them because they were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.   Matthew 9:36
