Devotional – Mark 6

34 When he 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. 
 Just like the crowds who encountered Jesus we are also like sheep without a shepherd. We are wandering in this world with no guidance, no hope, and nothing to sustain us. Jesus seeing the crowd in this state begins to teach them, to give them the truths they need and becomes their shepherd, their leader and savior. We are all in need of such a savior and shepherd to teach us. So we are encouraged by Paul in his second letter to Timothy to turn to the scriptures when he says: “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”
