Jesus felt compassion for this widow who had but one son, and in that culture it would mean that she would be in a very tough place if he died. Jesus healed the son, which of course is a big deal, however an even more important thing was that he had compassion for her. We may not be able to heal people, but all of us can have compassion for those who are struggling with life’s pains and sorrows. One of the definitions of compassion is to suffer with. I pray that you are given the guidance, love, and compassion to suffer with those around you and to walk with them in their pain! Vernon T.
