The spiritual gift of mercy literally means “to help the afflicted”. The Holy Spirit works through believers to care for the hurting with cheerful acts of compassion. Those with this gift come alongside the broken and seek to lighten their load. In this session Steve Lake talks about compassion and empathy in action. Biblical examples, analogies, quotes from commentaries and stories from life help understand the importance of sharing the pain of other people through taking part in home or hospital visitation.
This program is already assigned to that list.
