Moved with Compassion

By The Rev. Dr. Paul A. Leggett

Sunday, April 6, 2014

Text:Matthew 20:29-34


The crowds have no compassion.  In response to the two blind men crying out for mercy to Jesus they order them to be quiet.  We don’t know why the crowd responds this way.  Had they heard too much tragedy and they couldn’t bear any more?  Suffering and tragedy are tests of faith (James 1:2-4).  They either draw us closer to the Lord or drive us further away.  Yet dealing with tragedy is the ultimate test of faith.  Jesus responds in compassion to our struggles and suffering.  Even in judgment Jesus weeps in compassion (Luke 19:41-44).  Jesus’ ultimately shows his compassion in his death on the cross (Luke 22:34).

I Kings

Solomon’s Wisdom: “I Kings Chapter 3-5”

April 2, 2014

Solomon’s reign begins like a golden age.  He has peace on every side.  He asks the Lord to give him “an understanding mind” (I Kings 3:9) so he will be able to govern the people effectively.  God is pleased with his request, and in addition, gives him riches and honor. In a famous example of his wisdom, he settles a dispute between two women each claiming to be the mother of a baby.  Solomon undertakes the great task of his life, building a temple for the Lord. The fame of his wisdom spreads throughout the earth.
