So Jesus had compassion and touched their eyes. And immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed Him.
Matthew 20:34 NKJV
Task-oriented people often have difficulty seeing others when they are running from one job to another. In high school, it would offend other students when I would not see, hear, or talk to them between classes. Even today, when I’m on a specific mission in work or day-to-day activities, I often am blind to the needs of those around me, which leads to unintentional hurts.
However, if we are to operate as extensions of Christ’s body to the world, noting the hurts around us is essential. Jesus went much further than that. He didn’t just note the hurts of others, His true compassion led Him to action.
