Join in the conversation. This week: “Where does compassion come from?”
What makes up our soul? Where do feelings come from? Why are we compassionate for other living things?
Seriously, where does compassion come from? From our neurons firing in our brain, from within a group of muscles in the middle of our chest pumping oxygen and platelets and fluid around? From where? How is it that we have the capacity to love and hate with such intense emotion?

We find one example in Genesis 2:7: “The Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul [nephesh]” (King James Version). The New International Version says “man became a living being.” More can be found in scripture at YouVersion.com & also in “The Scrpture Doctrines of the Person of Christ.” Google docs are amazing.
