Mark 6:34 And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.

It was divine compassion that moved Jesus to begin to teach the crowd in the first place. He and the disciples had actually gone away from crowds to find a place to rest but the crowd rushed ahead of them and were waiting.
Knowing their hearts Jesus knew they were looking for direction. They were searching for truth and He was willing to share it with them. The same divine compassion was his reason for wanting to feed them physically as well.
Sometimes we forget that God can take care of physical needs as well as spiritual needs. Sometimes we fail to ask God for the very things in life that we need to sustain that life. Do we forget that Jesus is compassionate?
Not only is Jesus compassionate and wants to meet the needs of others, we who follow Him should want to follow His example of compassion. When have you shown compassion on someone lately and helped to meet their need?
When we call Jesus our Lord we should have the same divine compassion for others that He demonstrated when He fed the multitude.
