Dr. Hamlin’s Reflection for Sunday, October 26, 2014

“When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless,

like sheep without a shepherd.”

       Jesus, Matthew 9.36

 “If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy,

practice compassion.”

       Dalai Lama, XIV

 Our guest revivalist, Dr. Toussaint K. Hill, Jr., preached, “Don’t Worry, Be Happy,” emphasizing the need to trust Jesus to guide us through difficult situations and to trust Christ for the final results and outcomes.

 As Jesus ministered in Galilee, He witnessed the suffering of those who were marginalized, ostracized, ignored, judged, poverty-stricken, caught in catch-22 situations.  Despite the obvious challenges, Jesus encouraged people to see and embrace God’s love.  How did Christ make the difference?  He was compassionate; He showed the world how to be compassionate.  It is very easy to be judgmental.  It is very easy to ignore the needs of people or relegate those needs to the government, social services agencies, or some other institution.  Yet, we see Christ showing us and modeling for us how to be compassionate human beings.
