Compassion is a hot topic these days. Who deserves it, should it affect our politics, and what's in it for me...

In this episode, Dave and Deb dig into compassion and digress to the Great British Baking Show and Survivor -- the longest running American reality TV show, hosted by "America's Camp Director" Jeff Probst.

Sometimes, we unwittingly view compassion as a means to an end. Whether that end is reward or response. But is compassion merely currency to get me what I want?

God addressed compassion over and over in the Old Testament and Jesus did it again both preaching it and living it out in the New.

Between people, compassion is love's response to suffering. It's a character quality that should mark Christians, but, as David Englehart writes, "Compassion needs to be nurtured and practiced or even this basic love response can grow dull and cold."
