“God’s love is what we are created for and living lives of compassion are what He invites us to.”
From my sermon Everyone Gets To Play: Being People of Mercy and Compassion

What does it look like to live lives of mercy and compassion? Recently, I shared the following message at my home worship community, during which I looked at: what compassion is, how mercy and compassion is at the heart of God, His invitation to us to us, and how we can cultivate it in our lives.
