Yesterday, I mentioned a few thoughts about being alone so I thought it fitting to look at the other side today – crowded. Some people love crowds & revel in the energy, noise & pulsation of people collections – concerts, mosh pits, congregations, World Series & symphonies come to mind.
If you struggle with crowds, here are some ideas from Jesus’ skin time:
- Jesus was moved with compassion when He saw a crowd
- Jesus saw & crowd & their need for leadership (sheep without a shepherd)
- Jesus knew that a crowd was the conduit for His necessary crucifixion & ultimate resurrection.
Let’s see crowds & more importantly people, from God’s perspective: individuals available for redemption & reconciliation 🙂
