When the Lord saw her, He had compassion on her and said to her, "Do not weep"
Luke 7:13

Her tears blurred her vision. While we do not know if she saw Jesus, we know she did not reach out to him. Yet her son was dead and needed life. She knew Jesus was a healer, but what could He do for her? In the midst of her grief, Jesus saw her and he had compassion. Instead of skipping to the happy end of this story, let's stop here. Jesus had compassion.
This simple phrase is found throughout each of the Gospels. An integral part of Jesus part of Jesus' character character is His compassion. Sometimes we find it easier to pray for others than for ourselves. We subconsciously wonder, why would God help me? We forget Jesus' compassion when we get stuck in this mindset. The life-changing truth is that Jesus is good and He encourages us to ask Him for help. He never ran from disease, death, or wretchedness.
Wile we may not understand why certain prayers are answered quickly as others hang painfully in the air, we can be assured that He sees us and He cares.
