Be Moved by What Moved Christ

Christ’s concern for a hurting world revealed itself in 2 ways:1) condemnation to those who took advantage of others, and 2) compassion toward those who couldn’t help themselves. One time he took a whip and threw the money changers out of the temple; another time he healed the sick and fed the hungry.

So don’t become complacent and say, “I know there’s trouble in the world. It’s regrettable. But as long as it doesn’t touch me personally I’d prefer not to think about it. Cheating happens every day in business and politics. That’s just the way things are.”

Be moved by what moved Christ. Matthew 9:36, “When he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion.
