Psalms 39:1-7; Mark 14: 3-11
When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd..
(ESV – Matt. 9:36)
What do you think about those pictures? Do you have some opinion about those pictures? Can you describe what really happened on those pictures? Is it the reality around our lives? Do you find similar situation nearby your home or school?
If you can identify what really happened in our society, as a teenager, what will you do in those situations?
Jesus’ love always makes everything becomes good. Jesus healed sick people. He feed the hungers. He sent evil away from someone’s life. He helped people got their dignity again in front of others. Jesus also gave his love to us. The question here is do we just enjoy Jesus’ love in our own lives without being aware of other people, our neighbors who also need attentions, helps and caring from us?
Now, please think of some real actions to help other people. It can be a simple action plan that you program with your group in church. For example, make one fund raising program to collect some money. Use that money to help poor children nearby your church to have new books or stationary, or to buy milk or food for poor old people in your church. Ask your parents or elders or even your pastor to help you with such plan!
“Dear Jesus, thank you for loving me so much. Remind me to share your love to others by practicing your compassion to my neighbors. Please help me to be unselfish and not enjoying your love by myself. Amen.”
