Mt 9:32-38

The vicious accusation launched by the Pharisees is a sign of the growing animosity they hold for Jesus. Sadly, they do not nor are they willing to acknowledge his power and his goodness. Jesus sees the needs of the people both physical and spiritual. He suffers with them. Matthew then moves from the image of the shepherd leader to the immediate need for more laborers because of the abundant harvest.

There are so many people in your world who are “troubled and abandoned.” I pray for compassion no matter their circumstance or disposition.
