In Mark 6:34 the passage speaks of how Jesus “had compassion” on the people because they were “like sheep without a shepherd,” so he taught and healed them. Compassion is a two-edged sword that cuts both ways. When one has compassion, it provides a source of motivation from which one can draw on to care about other people. But if one does not have compassion, or one’s compassion dries up, so to speak, does that mean one no longer needs to care for others?

Mark 6:34: As he went ashore, he saw a great crowd; and he had compassion for them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd; and he began to teach them many things.
