Daily Nugget

   Friday, April 19th, 2013.  Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.

Real-life hero “Stormin’ Norman” Schwarzkopf, the four-star general who led the allied forces of Desert Storm to their Gulf War victory over Iraq, was interviewed by Barbara Walters. As this tough military man talked about the war, there were tears in his eyes. His interviewer noticed, too, and in her classic style, Barbara Walters asked, “Why, General, aren’t you afraid to cry?” General Schwarzkopf replied without hesitation, “No, Barbara. I’m afraid of a man who won’t cry!” This truly great man knew that being tough doesn’t mean being insensitive or unfeeling or afraid to cry. No wonder soldiers gave their best when they served under his command. They knew the general cared about them; they could trust the man giving their orders. We need leaders whose hearts can be touched by our situations and who touch our hearts as well.

In 2 Corinthians 2:4, the apostle Paul shares his heart with these words: “For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote unto you with many tears; not that ye should be grieved, but that ye might know the love which I have more abundantly unto you.”

God, help us to have the compassion You have for those around us. Amen.
