January 22 – The Compassion of Jesus

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).

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. In Matthew 14:27, we see His compassion on the dozen. In 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?
