Jesus Noticed People.
Luke 18:40 When Jesus heard him he stopped and ordered that the man be brought to him. Then Jesus asked the man, “What do you want me to do for you?”

Jesus only had a few years to raise up the team which would be the foundation of His Church. Every day was precious as He mentored His disciples and ministered to His people. And yet, in the midst of that all-important task, Jesus was always able to stop what He was doing and meet an individual at their place of need.

We think of the blind beggar in Luke 18 as well as the old woman at her only son’s funeral (Luke 7:13), the leper (Luke 5:12), the Samaritan woman at the well (John 4:7) and Zacchaeus up in the sycamore tree (Luke 19:5). This is a reminder to us that in the midst of our busy lives we need to be mindful of those people around us. Family members. Relatives. Neighbours. Work mates. Church friends. We need to be ready to put everything on Pause and connect with them. To listen. To empathise. To pray.
