An excerpt from “Compelling Truth.org” entitled, “What Does The Bible Teach About Compassion?” states: “A general definition of compassion is sympathy and concern for the sufferings of others and a desire to alleviate such suffering. The Hebrew and Greek words translated as "compassion" in the Bible speak to having mercy or being moved with sympathetic pity.
The most important object this word is used to describe is God Himself. God is the root and foundation, the spring and fountainhead, of all true compassion (1 John 4:16). God's compassion is extoled throughout the Bible. Below are two particularly pertinent passages.” The article continues and may be viewed at: What does the Bible teach about compassion?

Application: “And by grace we not only share the experience of God’s compassion. By his enabling grace we can become the conduits of that compassion, following in Christ’s footsteps as did a host of our spiritual forbears. But if we indeed are copying Christ, as Paul urged in 1 Corinthians 11:1, our compassion will not be limited to bodily needs. It will have soul needs as its supreme priority.” [Source: https://ourdailybread.org/resources/examples-of-christlike-compassion ]
