'When He saw the crowds, he had compassion on them because they were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.'
How do you see people?
If we are becoming more like Jesus, we will see people as He does.
In these uncertain times, the world appears even more confused and helpless - truly like wandering sheep in need of protection and care from a good shepherd.
Jesus is the Good Shepherd and defines the 'state of play' in the next two verses:
He said to his disciples, “The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask Him to send more workers into his fields.”
Here at WSM, we are doing just that - praying for the Lord to send workers to reap changing lives from His harvest. We are so grateful for all the staff and volunteers that He has sent that serve so faithfully in this relevant work, yet there is so much need for many more.
Could you combine your passion for Him and a compassion for people and make a real difference wherever you are?
