Mark 6:34 Jesus saw the huge crowd as he stepped from the boat, and he had compassion on them because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things.

37 But Jesus told them, “You give them something to eat.” They asked Him, “Should we go out and spend two hundred denarii to give all of them bread to eat?”

Jesus’ compassion not only compelled Him to teach people many things, but it compelled him to give. Jesus understood that we can teach these people all day but at some point, they’ll stop listening because they’re hungry.

Many believers desire to go and preach the Gospel on the streets, but they fail to recognize these same people need something to eat as well. We can help their spiritual needs, but what are we giving that can help their physical needs?

It’s the same way with natural concepts. We can teach others about finances, budgeting, and investments, but it’s hard to listen when they’re worried about how they’re going to pay their rent in a few days. As the Spirit leads, we can give them some money that can help them pay the rent.

As a compassionate person, along with teaching, let’s be generous givers so that others literally experience our compassion.
