The story of the Good Samaritan is always a good example to demonstrate compassion. Jesus' astuteness is exemplified in His contrasting the behaviour of the Priest and Levite with that of the Samaritan to make His point. I think your article brings this out.

This almost sounds like it was written as a sermonette to be spoken in church! The message is excellent, and I especially like your line, "Compassion doesn't start in the temple or in the church, but it starts at home, it reaches next-door, and then it extends across town and beyond." Amen to that! Thank for sharing your thoughts!
