Mark 8:1-26

“Compassion” (Mark 8:2): This is where everything comes from – the feeding of the crowds (Mark 8:1-10), the healing of the blind man (Mark 8:22-26). Jesus opens our eyes to see how great His love is. He feeds us with spiritual food – the Gospel of His love.

Sadly, there is, between these two miracles, the Pharisees who argued with Jesus (Mark 8:11). They did this because their hearts were “hardened” (Mark 8:17). They had not allowed his compassion to reach them and change them. How sad! – but it doesn’t have to be like this.
