For every child of God, God has a plan and purpose – to be conformed into the image of his son.
Jesus’ life was all about people.
When Jesus saw crowds of people, His heart moved with compassion. This is a glimpse at the heart of God.
Jesus was always looking for people who needed Him.
Jesus always had time for people.
Jesus was never to busy with grownups to take time for Children. Children were important to Jesus… They still are.
Jesus didn’t squash those who were in sin. Instead He lifted them up.
The way of Jesus is the way of grace, of coming under and lifting up.
What a man. What a teacher. What a master. We have so much to learn – what is our attitude toward people?
How do we respond to needs when it doesn’t fit into our schedule? When it isn’t convenient?
Do we see people as an inconvenience and a bother? Or do we see them as our most important priority in life.
The way we respond to people reveals where our heart is at.
