On Sunday, we were reminded about the behaviors of sheep. Sheep are easily let astray and need a shepherd to protect them and keep them safe. We were reminded of the sheep’s behavior because our text in Mark said, “Jesus had compassion on them as sheep without a shepherd.” We asked what does that kind of compassion look like.
We shared examples of that kind of compassion. It is a compassion that meets people where they are and provide for there needs where they are. It is a compassion that respects each person as created in the image of God. It is a compassion that serves neighbor and loves neighbor as God loves us. May we this week and always be compassionate to others as God is compassionate to us.
Prayers and peace,
