Prison Guide, John Parker, shares the key to empathy and caring!
Paul’s explanation for his confidence and joy is that his heart is involved. He explains, “For God is my witness, how I yearn for you all with the affection of Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 1:7–8, ESV)
Paul’s joy and deep affection for others emerge from his deep connection with Jesus. Invest in your inner relationship with Jesus Christ and his affection will start affecting your all relationships for the good—now and forever!
Today’s passage: “It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you in my heart, for you are all partakers with me of grace, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel. For God is my witness, how I yearn for you all with the affection of Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 1:7–8, ESV)
