The theme of compassion and care for people in need, weaves its way through the Bible. In the Hebrew Bible, it can be seen vividly in the theologically rich Hebrew word hesed.It is often translated as “loving kindness” or “steadfast love,” “mercy.” Hesed is used over 200 times in the Old Testament. It is most often used in reference to God’s unwavering compassion for His people. Hesed describes God’s compassionate, forgiving, merciful character. The great challenge for us is that this loving-kindness, which is so central to the character of God is to be reflected in how we live out our lives.
