The ministry of Jesus in Galilee begins not only with His preaching but also with His kind deeds. In both His actions and words, Jesus seeks to establish the kingdom of God. He does so by acts of kindness and in words of mercy.

How willing am I to place myself in the midst of persons in need? Am I willing to be uncomfortable to provide comfort to others?

Dear Jesus, help me to be Your presence in the world today. May I imitate Your kindness and mercy towards these whom I meet today.
