Matthew 14: 14 - 21
14 And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick. 15 When it was evening, His disciples came to Him, saying, “This is a deserted place, and the hour is already late. Send the multitudes away, that they may go into the villages and buy themselves food.” 16 But Jesus said to them, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.” 17 And they said to Him, “We have here only five loaves and two fish.” 18 He said, “Bring them here to Me.” 19 Then He commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass. And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes. 20 So they all ate and were filled, and they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments that remained. 21 Now those who had eaten were about five thousand men, besides women and children.
In these verses of scripture, Jesus was showing through his actions, His genuine compassion for people. He was practically living out His compassion and empathy for humanity. His compassion was evidenced by Him healing the sick amongst them. He understood the pain and discomfort they were going through with sickness in their bodies so He did something. His compassion was evidenced by Him not sending the people away hungry, but by Him feeding them. He did not look at their sheer number and throw up His arms and say; they are too many, how can I feed all of these like the disciples did? He understood that these people must have been physically hungry, haven not eaten all day, and if they were to be sent away like that, some will have fainted or collapsed on the way, so He did something.
