Is this what you think of when you think "Compassion"

Justin Taylor reminded me today of an observation I have made before in reading through the gospels:

“When [Jesus] went ashore he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. And he began to teach them many things (Mark 6:34)

One way compassionate people express their compassion is by teaching others. Do you feel cared for when others teach you?
