Have you ever noticed that people are becoming hard hearted in this day and age. There have always been hard hearted people on this earth, from the time that Adam and Eve were ousted from the Garden of Eden; however, it seems that a hardened attitude has become the prevalent attitude on this earth.
This actually was predicted in the Bible: Jesus predicted this about the last days in Matthew 24:12 & 13.
Matthew 24:12 & 13
12.) "And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.
13.)"But he who endures to the end shall be saved."
I want to do a lesson or two on having compassion, and hope that this will benefit you in your studies.
Some places are more like this than other places, yet we are all seeing the effect of hardness of heart in the societies we live in. It is very hard to get through to alot of people in my area; (Southwest Nebraska), and it is becoming more and more difficult all the time. I am very concerned about this. Many of you might have stories about the areas in which you live, that are similar to mine. People this is the birthpangs of the last days. It's inevitable that it will worsen, and yet we can be a great influence with our prayers; attitudes, and actions. This is a bridge that many Christians need to cross, and we can pray that they do! In the meantime start reading and studing, the book of Isaiah and the book of Matthew using your Bible Concordance if you have one; look up the word heart!
Please join me as I continue this study on another day; for I have some good Bible teachings, that I hope will help us in this endeaver of compassion.
