Choose Presence

Matthew 9:18-38

When we read and talk about how interactive and insightful Jesus was with people wherever he went, we tend to attribute it to his divinity. But what if it was his humanity that allowed him to see and have compassion for so many people? 

What if Jesus was the most present human who ever lived? And if we want to follow after him, what does it mean to seek that kind of awareness and choose to be a present people?
