Time after time Jesus courageously challenged the Pharisee’s empty religiosity, knowing he would be misunderstood and persecuted. His focus was on God’s approval, not man’s. Is there a situation in which you need to ask God to give you courage?
Over and over Jesus lovingly demonstrated compassion to children, and the downtrodden. He healed the blind beggar who called out to him even when the disciples tried to quiet him, the leper who asked to be healed, the demon possessed man whom no one could manage. Is there someone in your life that needs the Godly compassion you can demonstrate?
May our lives demonstrate commitment, courage and compassion,
