Scripture:   2Corinthians 1:3   Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 

4   who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. 

Observation:   God is known as the “Father of compassion” and the “God of all comfort.”  He has these titles because compassion and comfort are priorities to Him. 

Application:    Two applications I see:  First, when I need comfort, I know where to go!  My Heavenly Father is the expert on comfort!  He invented it!  He created me and knows how to comfort me.  Second, when I see someone needing comfort I have the opportunity to pass along what God has given me!  Comforting others is being a part of God’s ministry to those He loves.    

Prayer:   Lord, thank you for the comfort you have given me; now use me to comfort others.    Amen
