Jesus: an Example of Compassion

Luke 7:1-17  (ID: 0102)

It’s easy to assume that God is not concerned with our suffering. Luke, however, reminds us that Jesus did not simply notice sickness, sin, and death; He overcame them. Confronting our selfish and callous attitudes toward others, Alistair Begg directs us to Jesus’ consciousness of those around Him and willingness to show mercy in unexpected places. Amid pain and suffering, Jesus displayed His power and compassion. Will we do the same?

1After he had finished all his sayings in the hearing of the people, he entered Capernaum.
