2014 May 19 - Morning Manna

Then when Mary was come where Jesus was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died. When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled, And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see. Jesus wept. Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him! (John 11:32-36)
Today's Morsel: The most powerful and greatest man that ever walked the earth was Jesus Christ; God manifested in flesh.  So why does scripture say that Jesus weep?  What would make Him cry?  He was created in the likeness of humanity.  And within humanity, there is this thing called compassion or the tender side, what some may call the weak side.  But compassion is actually strength. When there is sincere compassion in us, no matter how tough or how strong we may think that we really are, God has made us all to shed a tear towards others when they are hurting.  And Jesus was made in the likeness of His brethren.  Have you touched the weak side of God yet?  "And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh" (Jude 1:22-23).
Sing: To be like Jesus, to be like Jesus, on earth I long, to be like Him. All through life's journey, from earth to glory, I only ask, to be like Him.
