Matthew 14:13-14 (New International Version)(Also found in Luke 9: 11)
Prior to Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand
13When Jesus heard what had happened, he withdrew by boat privately to a solitary place. Hearing of this, the crowds followed him on foot from the towns. 14When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick.
Reflection: "Jesus had compassion on them and healed their sick." What compelled Jesus to heal them all? Isn't God glorious when we see Him manifested in Christ at that time, in that place? What of today? Do we dare call upon God in the name of Christ, through the power of the Holy Spirit, to heal? Do we have the gumption to do it?
