Is it natural?

'Be compassionate as your Father is compassionate.'
This command does not restate the obvious, something we already wanted but had forgotten, an idea in line with our natural aspirations. On the contrary, it is a call that goes right against the grain; that turns us completely around and requires a total conversion of heart and mind. It is indeed a radical call, a call that goes to the roots of our lives.
Compassion, McNeill, Morrison and Nouwen, p. 8

I think it is supernatural.... :) But thanks be to God we have been given EVERY spiritual blessing in the heavenly in that respect, He has given all we need to live out lives of compassion.
