“When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick.”
– Matthew 14:14 NIV
Compassion is one thing our world certainly seems to be lacking. God desires that we change that. Not only is there a lack of empathy, even when we do feel the pain of others, we too often fail to try to make things better. When Jesus saw the crowds that were following him, He had compassion on them and then did something about it. He healed the sick, and a few hours later fed more than 5,000 people who didn’t have anything to eat. Through acts of compassion, we will show others that we represent a God who cares, and who has acted on our behalf to make things better. Jesus acted by offering His perfect life on the cross to earn our forgiveness, and open to us the way of eternal life. Become a contagious Christian who attracts others to God through acts of compassion. Less judging with the mind, more acting from the heart. See those in need and consider it a privilege to help them.
