    True compassion is not human sympathy but to do the will of God.
    Case in point; Jesus at the pool of Bethesda.

    Can you clarify? Jesus healed a man on the Sabbath because he couldn't go to the healing pool because of his illness. There were many acts of Jesus that were considered compassionate but did his act, healing someone on the day of God more compassionate? Can you expound on this? Thanks.

      I don't believe compassion is a variable or measurable quality with God.
      I understand it is an attribute of the eternal God that is reflected in varying degrees in our finite experience.
      In St. John 5: it says that Jesus healed a man with an infirmity and left the great multitude lay there many of which were in a much more serious condition.
      Scripture says not to lean on our understanding.

      I don't think the fact that Jesus healed on the Sabbath is a factor because He is Lord of the Sabbath and He said the Sabbath was made for man and not man for the Sabbath.
      To sum it up let me say that our senses were given to us to contact this earthly realm but not to lead us.
      We understand that Satan chose the mind and that it is place where the battle takes place.
      God chose the heart and only faith or unbelief can reside there.
      God bless

      Not sure whether I addressed your point.
