God outsources

He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. 2 Cor. 1:4

We develop compassion and learn the art of comforting as we experience pain ourselves and receive God’s comfort. In essence, God has partially outsourced compassion and comfort to His followers. His love is present and His name is glorified when we reach out to hurting people.

Lord, help me deliver compassion and comfort in Your name.
