Enrichment - Winter 2011-2012: Compassion Ministry: Expressing the Heart of God
Item # 75TW1093
Many churches are doing compassion ministry. Others are wondering how to and what to do to start
compassion ministry. But one thing is certain: compassion ministry expresses the heart of God. Psalm
146:7–9 reads: "He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The Lord sets
prisoners free, the Lord gives sight to the blind, the Lord lifts up those who are bowed down, the
Lord loves the righteous. The Lord watches over the alien and sustains the fatherless and the widow,
but he frustrates the ways of the wicked."
