One of the signs that you have a soft and compassionate heart is that you cannot tolerate suffering of any kind. Wherever there is suffering, you feel an urgent desire to eradicate it. If you can look on suffering and not feel moved to respond, you should begin to pray that God will soften your heart, and move you to respond whenever there is a need. Pray also that you will see the world in the way that God sees it, and will respond in the manner in which the Holy Spirit directs you to respond.
