We’re attempting to answer the question What exactly are Christians supposed to do? by looking at 50 commands straight from the mouth of Jesus.
We kicked things off with Jesus’ Big 2. He said there are no commands greater than these:
- Love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength.
- Love your neighbor as yourself.
(Matthew 22:37-40; Mark 12:28-34)
Jesus’ other commands show what it reeeeeally means to love God and others. Here’s today’s featured command:
You must be compassionate, just as your Father is compassionate. (Luke 6:36)
Other translations say “be merciful.” Others say “be sympathetic.” So …
Do what Jesus says: BE COMPASSIONATE, MERCIFUL AND SYMPATHETIC.
