Mark 8:2 - Compassion

"I have compassion for these people;"  -Mark 8:2

There it is again.  Jesus having compassion for the people, this time because they were hungry.  Sometimes I become overwhelmed with the needs of the world.  Some say 1 out of 8 people in the world don't have enough food to eat.  Children are hit the hardest.  Some say that 1.2 billion people lack access to clean drinking water.    And what about orphans, human trafficking, refugees, oppressive governments, safety issues, unemployment and the list goes on and on and on.  Most important, what about the need for their souls?

But Jesus didn't ask me to cure all of the world's problems.  In fact, he didn't when he lived here.  What I learn from Jesus is have a heart to help.  Get involved somewhere and help change this world for Jesus.  Do something.  Check out this video.
