How is your compassion ?

“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 ?

  • Lazyness
  • Being undisciplined
  • Comfortability
  • 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
