Compassion: Who Does Good and Why (Part 2: Thanksgiving Edition)


Who does good?

God does good, because it is his nature and his way to do good.

Today with appreciation to Timothy Keller from whose outstanding book Generous Justice: How God’s Grace Makes Us Just I compiled these references, I draw your attention to the heart of God for the poor, burdened, and vulnerable. I encourage you to reflect on these passages and give thanks to God with me for his heart of compassion.

  • Psalm 146:7-9
  • Deuteronomy 10:17-18
  • Psalm 33:5
  • Isaiah 58:6-7
  • Matthew 11:4-5
  • Matthew 25:31-46
  • Proverbs 19:17, 14:31

I could add much more than this, but if you share with me in this much that’s plenty!

The holiday is approaching here in the U.S. and it’s not time for me to write more now. I will have much more to add when I review the book.

(Readers outside the U.S., thank you for joining in this much of our holiday with us!)
