Your Bible Verse of The Day

Daily Bible Verse Luke 7:13

Jesus’s Compassionate Response in Times of Grief

When the Lord saw her, His heart went out to her and He said, “Don’t cry.”

~ Luke 7:13

Thought of the Day

Today's thought for the day comes from Luke 7:13, a touching moment where Jesus encounters a grieving widow. It says, ‘When the Lord saw her, his heart went out to her and he said, “Don’t cry.”‘

Isn't it beautiful to picture Jesus, the embodiment of compassion, reaching out to comfort someone in their moment of sorrow? This verse reminds us of the depth of Jesus' love and empathy towards those who are hurting.

Imagine the scene: a widow, mourning the loss of her loved one, consumed by grief and despair. Yet, in the midst of her tears, Jesus sees her. He sees her pain, her anguish, and her heartache. And His response is so simple yet profound: “Don't cry.”

Those two words carry a world of comfort and assurance. They speak to Jesus' tender care and His desire to alleviate her suffering. They remind us that even in our darkest moments, Jesus is there, extending His hand of compassion and offering His words of solace.

So, if you're feeling overwhelmed by sorrow or burdened by grief today, take heart in knowing that Jesus sees you. He sees your pain, He understands your struggles, and He longs to bring you comfort. You are not alone in your tears.

May this verse serve as a reminder of Jesus' unwavering love and compassion towards each of us. And may it inspire us to reach out to those around us who are hurting, offering them the same comfort and reassurance that Jesus offers us.

Let's embrace the compassion of Christ today and extend His love to those in need. And remember, even in the midst of tears, there is hope and comfort in the arms of our Savior. Have a blessed day, filled with the peace and presence of Jesus.


Heavenly Father,

As we bow before Your presence, we are moved by the tender compassion displayed by Your Son, Jesus, in Luke 7:13. When He saw the grieving widow, His heart went out to her, and He uttered the comforting words, “Don't cry.”

Lord, we come to You today with hearts heavy with sorrow and burdened by grief. We lift up to You all those who are experiencing the pain of loss and mourning the absence of loved ones. Just as Jesus saw the widow's tears and offered her solace, we ask that You see our tears and bring us comfort.

Father, in the midst of our sorrow, may we feel the warmth of Your embrace and the gentle whisper of Your love. Grant us Your peace that surpasses all understanding, and wrap us in Your arms of mercy and compassion.

We pray for those who are overwhelmed by grief, that You would be their source of strength and their refuge in the storm. May they find comfort in Your presence and hope in Your promises.

Lord Jesus, You are the One who understands our pain, having experienced it firsthand. You wept with those who wept, and You carried our sorrows on the cross. We thank You for Your empathy and Your unwavering love.

Holy Spirit, come and minister to our hearts, bringing healing and restoration. Help us to trust in Your comforting presence and to find solace in Your abiding love.

As we navigate the journey of grief, may Your light shine in the darkness, leading us to a place of peace and hope. And may we, in turn, become instruments of Your comfort and compassion to those around us who are in need.

In the name of Jesus, who comforts us in all our afflictions, we pray.


"And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds,
not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another
—and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:24-25"
