To show genuine compassion apart from the ministry is not encouraged. It can happen, but generally LSM publications have become a crutch to many. As a result there's not knowing how to care genuinely and sincerely apart from the publicatons. In my experience a word of encouragement would be to call on the Lord 3x.
