  • I think the only limits are the ones you set for yourself.
    • Rick Myres
      I don't limit compassion or anything else I can think of.
    • Archie Bunker
      I do. When I see that my compassion is being wasted or taken advantage of. There are times when lines have to be drawn.
    • Rick Myres
      But God does not limit compassion. Aren't we to live like Jesus to show His example?
    • Archie Bunker
      Only if you believe in that sort of thing. But what if someone doesn't? Does that mean they can't be compassionate? Or set limits on their compassion?
    • Rick Myres
      My own brother showed me no compassion for my hearing loss after I repeat many time for him. He was not listening to Jesus he was listening to Satan.
    • Rick Myres
      Psalms 145:8 KJV “The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.”
    • Archie Bunker
      Because you can't hear so good that means your brother is listening to Satan?
    • Rick Myres
      Yes he was but not because I cannot hear that well it was his showing no compassion. We are supposed to show compassion all the time and if a person is mad they need to anyway is is called self control. His hearing is worse than mine.
    • Archie Bunker
      Yeah. I'd probably say it's more frustration than Satan. I'm deaf as a door nail and I understand when people get frustrated. Maybe you need to show more compassion for him. People in glass houses, and all that.....
    • Rick Myres
      I have always shown him compassion.
    • Archie Bunker
      Well, that's subjective now, isn't it?
  • I noticed you unfolded your question to speak of compassion: http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/3514998 The difference between mankind and God, humans are naturally selfish, ungrateful and quick to anger. God who informs us of His compassion is an endless mercy to those who call upon Him. Isaiah 55:6 "Seek the LORD while he may be found; call upon Him while He is near;"
