The description of God’s judgment in this week’s focus scripture might leave us with the frightening image of an all-powerful ruler. But the true image of Christ as ruler emphasizes compassion. Throughout this season, we’ve heard stories of how God desires for us to live – closer to God and closer to one another. The choice is ours. Our actions and response to the most vulnerable are important. Our devotion to the one who made us and who will make the judgment of our lives is crucial.
This week, start and continue to add to a list of examples of compassion that you see around you. Include the compassionate works of you, neighbours, strangers, and people in the news from your community and around the world.
