Listening with Compassion

From the pages of A Wreath of Snow

On their long walk through the snowy countryside, when she’d bared her soul to him, Gordon had caught a glimpse of Margaret at fourteen. Vulnerable. Innocent. Fragile. However polished and grown-up her appearance this morning, he still saw a brokenhearted young lass with tears in her eyes.

I’m sorry, Margaret. He not only understood her pain; he shared it many times over.

Any time of the year, but especially at Christmas, the greatest gift we can give someone is a listening ear with a generous measure of compassion. Who might you offer that gift to this holy season?

“Bear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ.” Galatians 6:2

An original devotion by Liz Curtis Higgs, author of A Wreath of Snow
