Both compassion and wisdom are virtues. But compassion without wisdom can be careless, even reckless. Wisdom without compassion is useless, even pharisaical. (Christopher Yuan, author, seminary professor)
Yuan continues, “True compassion flows from wisdom, and true wisdom results in compassion—there should be no dichotomy.” It is difficult at times to know how to respond to life’s difficult circumstances. We want to help, but will our help simply enable someone to continue in a wrong path? Always try to properly balance wisdom and compassion.
You must be compassionate, just as your Father is compassionate (Luke 6:36)
