Mark 6-34

When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things.
Mark 6:34


When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things.

Thoughts on the Verse
Jesus reminds us of the incredible importance of teaching. While we might have expected miracles or wonders arising out of Jesus' compassion, what shepherd-less sheep most need is good, solid, down to earth, practical teaching from a teacher who knows them and cares for them.

 Prayer
Almighty God, please bless your Church with dynamic, compassionate and effective teachers. Give your people, your sheep, a hunger for your Word and a willingness to put it into practice in our lives. In Jesus name. Amen.
