One of the qualities Jesus demonstrated, instrumental in drawing others to Him, was compassion.
Mentioned several times, Jesus was compassionate to both those physically and spiritually in need.
His compassion was more than sympathy about someone else’s distress, it moved Him to act in ways that met the need.
An awareness of pressing needs is an important component, but compassionate leaders seek ways to get involved to help meet those needs.
I pray God will give us all the compassion to be aware of our environment and help meet the needs.
