To live like Jesus is to feel compassion for those in distress.  The hungry, the helpless, the sick, the suffering, the left-out, the lonely, the poor, all caught His eye because they already had His heart.  Seeing and feeling need calls for action.  In our video-clip culture we are in danger of becoming desensitized.  The needs are great.  We can all do something.  Compassion is a virtue when expressed!

 “When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.” Matthew 9:36 (NRSV)
