Treat Them Better Than How They Treat You!

“The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love.” – Psalm 145:8 

You and I cannot pour from empty cups.

I think it’s essential for us to realize that when we lack compassion for others, it’s often because we have not fully grasped the vast mercy of our God.

I’m usually pretty hard on myself. I put a lot of pressure on myself, I have my own foot on my throat nine times out of ten and maybe you do too. I expect myself to be perfect, and I am peeved with myself when I fail to live up to my expectations. And it’s when I find myself in those valleys that I look up and realize that my God doesn’t feel the same way I do.

He is gracious – He treats us much better than we deserve. He is merciful – He spares us from what we do deserve. He is slow to anger – He doesn’t react or get easily irritated. He is compassionate – He looks on us, knowing we are sinful humans that need a savior. And that’s why He sent us Jesus.

When you and I are confronted with the immeasurable grace of our compassionate Father, a God who has provided us a way to be reconciled to Him despite our willful, constant rebellion against Him, it changes the way we look at ourselves.

The second commandment to love our neighbor as ourselves is impossible if we don’t believe that Jesus loves us in the same way. That’s the only way we can have compassion toward people who hurt us, who are different from us, whom we would rather not have anything to do with.

I pray that you live out of a deep understanding and gratitude for the compassion God has toward you – and that through the Holy Spirit, it permeates throughout your life and overflows to everyone you encounter today and every day.

Lord Jesus, I thank You that You are not like me. I can have a short temper, I can get easily irritated, and I don’t always show compassion to those around me, especially people who have offended me. Forgive me for having a hard heart toward people. Help me to better understand the unconditional love that You have for me so I can live it out to those around me. I pray that people might know that I am Your child because of my compassion. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

The Challenge…

Pay attention when you are hard on yourself. Ask yourself, how does God see me right now? Replace those thoughts with truths from God’s Word. Invite the Holy Spirit to help you look at others the same way.

Declare The Decree!

I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee (Psalm 2:7). You have a father and you have a family. You have a decree concerning your destiny. You must declare the decree! Say about yourself what God has said about you.

God hears me and will rescue me! “My heart is in anguish within me; the terrors of death have fallen on me. Fear and trembling have beset me… I call to God, and the Lord saves me. Evening, morning and noon I cry out in distress, and he hears my voice. He rescues me unharmed…” (Psalm 55:4-5, 16-18).

God is mighty to save! “Never again will you fear any harm… The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing” (Zeph. 3:15, 17)

God is for me! God loves me and I am more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus! “If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? …Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?… No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” (Romans 8:31-32, 35-37)

God is with me to help me!God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble!” (Psalm 46:1).

God will keep me safe! “The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid? … For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling!” (Psalm 27:1,5).

God is my healer and my rescuer! “Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. He sent out his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave” (Psalm 107:19-20).

God is my deliverer! “Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.” (Psalm 50:15).

God is my restorer and will refresh me by His Spirit. “To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear” (Isaiah 28:12).
