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.
