Compassion

Every Friday morning I meet with two women at our church. We share, encourage each other and pray together for an hour or so. Matt comes along, of course. Most times he plays with toys, sometimes insisting that I play with him whilst I chat - it is a good thing that I can multi-task. He is usually not interested in us big people, but today was different. My one friend was sharing a difficult experience and was very tearful and sobbing quite loudly. Matt was quite concerned about this - he crawled up to her. Pulled himself into standing position in front of her and put his hand in hers, whilst looking deeply into her eyes. It was such a precious moment for all of us. My friend said she was really moved by Matt's act of compassion. I had tears welling up in my eyes as I watched my little boy sharing love with someone in pain. I am amazed at how God is already using him to bless others - even at such a young age.
