God Cares about Your Pain — A Quote by John Burke in “Mud and the Masterpiece”

“Everyone hurts; not everyone cares. But Jesus cares — of that you can be sure… Jesus entered into people’s pain, hurt, and places of deep need, and he showed them how much God cares. Picture what Jesus actually did the most: He spent morning to evening for three years meeting people at their greatest points of pain and need! It didn’t matter to him if they believed in him yet or not; he started where they felt the most need. If we want to treat people the way Jesus did, we must do the same…”

“How tragic that people far from God get the impression that Jesus has no compassion for the countless ways humans suffer. How many ways have we inadvertently conveyed that Jesus couldn’t care less about people’s pain and suffering, because they probably deserve it? Jesus didn’t do this; the Pharisees did.”
