DAILY DEVOTIONAL – Monday, August 3, 2015

Today’s scripture reading:

Jesus needs workers who know how to deal with people’s problems. We can comfort others and show them the way to live because we have been helped with our problems by God and his laborers. (NLT)

Matthew 9:35-38 – Jesus traveled through all the cities and villages of that area, teaching in the synagogues and announcing the Good News about the Kingdom. And wherever he went, he healed people of every sort of disease and illness. He felt great pity for the crowds that came, because their problems were so great and they didn’t know where to go for help. They were like sheep without a shepherd. He said to his disciples, “The harvest is so great, but the workers are so few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send out more workers for his fields.”

When [Jesus] saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. — Matthew 9:36 (NIV)

Leslie Anne Neal Segraves (Tennessee) titled her story “MOVED WITH COMPASSION;” here is a portion of Leslie’s story:

“. . . Viewing this crowd of people led me to pray for them and moved me to deep compassion. I was propelled into action. As our rickshaw slowly maneuvered its way through the crowds, I wondered what our world would be like if every Christ-follower were to pray for those who are suffering and then to act with compassion as Jesus commands.”

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY – I want to see the world through God’s eyes of compassion

Prayer: Dear Jesus, give us a compassion that moves us to see others through your eyes. Send us to serve those who are suffering. Amen.
