One of the qualities Jesus demonstrated, instrumental in drawing others to Him, was compassion.
Several times throughout the gospels, scripture points to the compassion of Jesus. He was compassionate to those in need both physically and spiritually.
His compassion, however, was more than a feeling of sympathy over their distress; it moved Him to act in ways that met the need.
Leaders who follow the example of Jesus realize the value of a compassionate approach. An awareness of someone’s needs is an important component, but compassionate leaders seek ways to get involved to help meet the need.
