“When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.”Matthew 9:36 NIV
Jesus’ compassionate heart drove Him to love people unconditionally and sacrificially.
It all depends on the way we see people. Jesus looked at people with a spiritual perspective.
Do I see people as harrassed and helpless ?
Just thinking back how much help I needed when I became a disciple should make me more compassionate towards people.
Do I see people as shepherdless ? Will I step up to the plate to provide leadership for them ?
What do I need to sacrifice today to be compassionate towards people ?
- Being undisciplined
- A worldly mindset
- Not getting involved
- To keep my hands clean
- My prejudice
- Being self focussed
- See past people’s veil of self reliance and see them as sheep
