13th Day of Elul: The King is in the Field

Elul, 13th Day. Elul, The King is in the Field. 

"The King’s place is in the royal palace. To speak with the King, an individual must go through bureaucratic channels, gain approvals, journey to the capital, pass through the castle, and be entirely prepared. But there are times when the King comes out to the fields. Anyone can approach to be received with care and compassion." Alden Solovy

Elul 12th Day: Humble Compassion

Elul 12th day. Another look at compassion. A deeper level is humble compassion.
"Compassion that humbles
is born of a deeper understanding of the order of things:
When you understand that the other guy is lacking
in order that you may be privileged to help him
—then you are truly humbled."

"Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. ... Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as Christ God forgave you." Ephesians 4:32
