"And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, preaching the gospel and healing every sickness and every disease."(See Matthew 9:35) Who did Jesus Help to make better? (Blind, Paralyzed, Leprosy)

From Karen Ashton, “Sharing Time: Look, Feel, and Help,” Friend, Jul 1996, 44
When Jesus lived on earth, He healed the sick. He fed the hungry and blessed the children. The Savior was often a friend to those who had no other friends. When He looked at others, He used His spiritual eyes and His heart. In this way He could understand how people felt and what they needed. He helped many, many people. He is the best example of someone who looked with His spiritual eyes, felt and understood with His heart, and then helped (see below for matching handouts)
