Rabbi Schneider - The Key to Unlocking Compassion
TOPICS: Rabbi Schneider: Devotions, Seeds of Revelation, Compassion

Beloved we're looking today at one of the most practically deep revelations in the word of God. We're looking at the Book of Luke 23:34 and examining Yeshuas, words as he hung on the cross when He said, "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do".

That is such a practical challenge because Jesus saw through the offense, He saw through the hatred, He saw through the cruelty, He saw through all their mocking. And He saw that underneath the cruelty and the pain was the fact that they didn't even know what they were doing. They were so broken, they had no idea what they were doing. And this allowed him to have compassion.

And so when I think about this, when people do something that offends me, I try to go deeper and I try to ask myself, what is it that makes this person this way? Why are they treating me this way? Why are they disrespectful? Why are they hostile? And oftentimes, you know, what the reason is, it's that they're afraid. We don't pick up. They're afraid we just pick up the fact that they've offended us somehow because they've been short with us or they've been disrespectful. But the key is to be able to see deeper.

So I want to encourage you and I, as those that have been born again, that are followers of Jesus, let's as we're walking through this life and we meet people like Jesus met, that are so hostile towards us, let's ask the Lord for revelation and understanding as to why these people are the way that they are. And oftentimes what the Lord's going to show us is how broken they are. And what that's going to do is allow us to show them compassion.
