“He was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And a great many people were added to the Lord.” Acts 11:24. In the book of Acts, a follower of Christ was well known for his care and concern toward others.  The Apostles called him Barnabas – “Son of Encouragement”. Barnabas demonstrated that compassion is an inner feeling resulting in an outward action. By God’s grace may we be known for it too. True compassion is love in action.
