“I have compassion for these people; they have already been with me three days and have nothing to eat. If I send them home hungry, they will collapse on the way, because some of them have come a long distance.”
Lord, we present ourselves to you and our request is to continue showing compassion to us, help us through our weaknesses and sins. Lord, read our hearts and remove what it is not yours, put yours in our hearts and embrace us in compassion, your compassion, we need you Lord, we rely on you and only you. In your precious name, Jesus Christ, amen!
There is so much pain and hurt around the world; the world as we know it. We use to focus on the pain and hurt because we consider it true. Ok, we do not need to live in denial but there is another truth as well – in parallel: there is also much happiness in this world. I have met people who are content and joyful. If you are honest and recall, you will remember some of those who you have met, isn’t it?
Above all truths, the one truth stands: the Lord has compassion and He is willing to offer compassion through which we find joy and happiness. He is thoughtfull and I believe that Mark’s above scripture speaks tons! Jesus was probably tired after three days of teaching and surrounded by those big crowds. Nevertheless, His thoughts were with those people who were with Him. They did not go to complain to Him, He thought by himself about their needs. Within His busy schedule, He thought of them and had compassion about their hunger, their health and their well being. He deeply appreciated that they walked long distances just to be with Him.
I believe that as He showed compassion to them, He is and will continue showing compassion to all His children. We need to just trust Him in this! The Bible is full of His compassion acts. Let’s keep reading His word and allow the Holy Spirit to reveal His love to us! Amen!
