God is present to the now in the person of Jesus. The words and deeds of Jesus – like God’s action in the world- is always perfectly appropriate to one’s needs.
Jesus was always moved by the plight of those whom He encountered. Am I sympathetic to those I meet? How will I respond today when I encounter someone in need?
Gracious God, inspire my heart to be open like the heart of Jesus. May I always be moved to respond with compassion.
