Every woman longs to make a difference in her world, but sometimes the needs just seem too big and the days are already too full of errands and obligations. This fifty-two-week devotional offers fresh inspiration and encourages every woman to see that she is uniquely gifted by God to make a difference right where she is. Poignant stories and powerful Bible passages demonstrate that small acts of compassion matter to God. Along with gaining a clear vision of God’s heart for the poor and marginalized, readers are challenged to nurture the twelve characteristics of women who overflow with creative compassion. Each weekly devotional reading includes principles and action steps for carrying God’s love and grace to those in need. As readers are equipped and motivated to put their faith into action, they’ll find their eyes and hearts opened to countless opportunities to carry out small acts of compassion and justice in the midst of daily living. Simple Compassion infuses women with the confidence that they can change the world, one life at a time.
