Today's Verse: Mark 6:34

Saturday, June 15, 2019

When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things.
— Mark 6:34

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Jesus reminds us of the incredible importance of teaching. While we might have expected miracles or wonders arising out of Jesus' compassion, what shepherdless sheep most need is good, solid, down to earth, practical teaching from a teacher who knows them and cares for them.

My Prayer...

Almighty God, please bless your Church with dynamic, compassionate, and effective teachers. Please give your people, your sheep, a hunger for your Word and a willingness to put it into practice in our lives. In Jesus' name. Amen.
