Compassion Conceded

When have you been hurting or in need? Who reached out to you? (Serendipity Bible 10th Anniversary Edition, page 1381).

It is impossible for me to consider this question without thinking of a homosexual encounter I had once in college with a young man named David K. I know it is common to attribute such behavior to lust and sin. I can never think about this in that way however. The plain fact is that I was hurting and desperately alone. I was feeling rejected by humanity and David obviously admired me as a person of worth and value— someone willing to make me feel equal and special. I will always be grateful to him for assuaging a pain that was deep and profound and for rescuing me from utter despair.
