Jesus displayed many examples of compassion through loving, healing, leading, teaching and feeding people.  When he went ashore, he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion for them and cured their sick.”  (Matthew 14:14, NRSV). “Jesus called his disciples to him and said, ‘I have compassion for the crowd because they have been with me now for three days and have nothing to eat, and I do not want to send them away hungry, for they might faint on the way’.”  (Matthew 5:32, NRSV). We are asked to be imitators of Christ; thus compassion should be imbedded in our daily lives.  Merriam-Webster defines compassion as “sympathetic consciousness of others’ distress together with a desire to alleviate it.”  Pray that you will be aware of the pain of others and how you could share support.  Read some Bible verses about compassion by clicking on the link below.
