Compassion for the Impoverished

Matthew 9 36

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 9:36

When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.

Jesus was not only concerned for the souls of the multitudes who followed Him, but also for their physical needs. We are called to be Christlike – gentle, caring and compassionate. There is a homeless epidemic in this country, many people are living in poverty and people are going hungry every day. The Coronavirus pandemic is making a complex problem even worse with many people losing their jobs, their homes and ultimately their lives. Everywhere you look there are people who desperately need help and more importantly, they need Jesus. People are hurting and it’s up to us as Christians to find a way to do what we can to help them by sharing the love and compassion of God and to bring souls to the Good Shepherd, Jesus Christ. If not us, then who?

Christlike Compassion

Psalm 72 13

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 72:13

He will have compassion on the poor and needy, And the lives of the needy he will save.

The Lord is merciful and has compassion on the poor and the needy. Not only does He offer salvation for their souls but He also takes care of their physical needs. Jesus made time to heal the sick, feed the hungry and He cared for the weakest among them. We must also have a heart of compassion for those in need. If there’s a specific charity or need that touches your heart, take the next step and make a donation or volunteer your time and service to an organization that addresses those needs. Let Jesus guide you in how you can help the less fortunate.
