The story of God is marked by a God of compassion.
-“The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness” Exodus 34:6
-"Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you!” Isaiah 49:15
-The compassion of God in the Old Testament continues in the New Testament. God sends Jesus as the ultimate display of His compassion.
-Jesus' ministry is marked by compassion, and He ultimately suffers on our behalf, dying on the cross for the sin of all mankind.
