Do we have Jesus' compassion?

Thought for the Day: "And Jesus, when He came out, saw a great multitude and was moved with compassion for them, because they were like sheep not having a shepherd. So He began to teach them many things." (Mark 6:34)

Compassion -- helping another regardless of inconvenience.

Compassion -- great love, sincerity of heart to aid another because of their inabilities.

Compassion -- an overwhelming response to others' needs.

"But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd." (Matthew 9:36)

One and another say to Jesus, "If You are willing You can make me clean." (1 Mark 40)

And Jesus responds likewise again and again, "I am willing; be cleansed."
(1 Mark 41)

Does this too apply similarly -- If we are willing we can teach another, we can help another understand the process, we can show another how to do something better?

Are we willing?

Are we moved with compassion, like Jesus? Are with moved with heartfelt love and concern for another human being to come to their aid whatever it may be?

As we follow our Lord faithfully, we become more aware of opportunities to show the kind of compassion He showed.
