'The Father of compassion'

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. 
Pretty much everyone likes a comfortable chair. A comfortable bed. Comfortable shoes.

Yet, there is so discomfort in this world. You know your own troubles. We know the troubles of those we love. And often, we try to offer comfort for those we love. God knows the troubles of those he loves - all of us - and he, too, offers comfort. And through God, you can help comfort others.

Paul reminded his fellow believers in Corinth. Remind yourself today - God is here to provide compassion and comfort. To you and through you.
