The most succinct verse in the Bible tells us simply, “Jesus wept.” And yet it speaks volumes about the compassion Jesus Christ felt for others. Like Him, we can respond to suffering with concern, mercy, and healing.
Three Simple Ways to Get Involved
Pray for an opportunity today to show someone compassion.
Participate in a local sub-for-Santa for a family that could use some holiday cheer.
Try leaving only encouraging comments on social media.
Great! Thanks for participating. Now invite your friends to Light the World with you! Use #LIGHTtheWORLD.

Don’t be afraid to look a homeless person in the eye and smile.
Volunteer to babysit the children of a single parent so he or she can finish Christmas shopping.
