Finding God's Goodness

Week 47. Compassion. The Cornerstone.

Valuing others is justice. The virtue of faith grows our faithfulness.

The rejected stones make the best cornerstones. The rejected stones actually make the best foundation holders. And whenever you see rejected stones becoming the focus of society, it is the Lord’s doing.

Jesus lived among the rejected. He ministered among the rejected. He died and was crucified as rejected, as somebody who was outside the political power structure. 

But early Sunday morning, from the grave he led a resurrection movement—a revival of love, a revival of justice, a revival of mercy, a revival of grace.

This is compassion in action and a model for us today. Where we can revive our hearts to living justly, pouring out gentle compassion.

Thank you, Lord, for Your just compassion in action.
