Compassion in Community: The Touch of Jesus
Jesus was not content to limit his preaching to the synagogues of His day. While on his way to meet with a man whose daughter had died, a woman in the crowd reached out to touch His garment, thinking that she would be healed of a twelve-year disease. In this brief encounter in Mark 5, we get a glimpse into the heart of Jesus. His heart was indeed a heart of compassion.
