The Latest Fad

The Latest Fad

Compassion is equally as important as worship and liturgy.

Pity is far removed from compassion.
Pity grows out of a sense of superiority
rather than a spirit of solidarity with others.

Compassion requires us to forget ourselves
and remember others.
Which is why we see so little of it,
even among Christians.
We don’t want to die to ourselves.

Spiritual transformation is far removed
from the latest fad for self-improvement.
We can improve ourselves
but only God can transform us.
Transformation involves a total metamorphosis.
To be transformed requires death and rebirth.
