Compassion

Matthew 20:29-34
Jesus Heals Two Blind Men
As they were leaving Jericho, a large crowd followed him. There were two blind men sitting by the roadside. When they heard that Jesus was passing by, they shouted, “Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!” The crowd sternly ordered them to be quiet; but they shouted even more loudly, “Have mercy on us, Lord, Son of David!” Jesus stood still and called them, saying, “What do you want me to do for you?” They said to him, “Lord, let our eyes be opened.” Moved with compassion, Jesus touched their eyes. Immediately they regained their sight and followed him.
Compassion
Noticing others
In tune with their distress
Listening to what they want
Filtering out the noise of the crowd
to hear the cries of those in need
and responding
with faith
and love
Pausing 
to make a difference
by reaching out
with a healing touch.
Jesus - 
Ministering to the crowd
Ministering to individuals
Changing lives
at every turn.
