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
