January 22 – The Compassion of Jesus

January 22
Genesis 44:1-45:28
Matthew 14:13-36
Psalm 18:37-50
Proverbs 4:11-13

Compare Genesis 44:34 to Genesis 37:26 that we read earlier. Judah has repented (see Webster’s 1828 definition – to change the mind).

Continuing yesterday’s theme – in Genesis 45:9 – Joseph’s family thought he was dead but now he is “lord of all Egypt.” While not a direct correlation, God seems to foreshadow what would happen to His Son.

Matthew 14:14 – hopefully you’re engaged in a personal biography of your God. What moved Jesus? Does what moves Him, move you?

Matthew 14:20 we see His compassion on the thousands. Matthew 14:27 we see His compassion on the dozen. Matthew 14:31 we see His compassion on just one.

Psalm 18:46 finishes a song we listened to a few days ago that starts with Psalm 18:3. Remember to be thankful for God’s deliverance – unlike the 9 lepers.

Proverbs 4:12 – Runners do not want to stumble. How can we avoid stumbling?
