What does this verse below mean?


What does compassion mean?

COMPASSION noun: sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others. "the victims should be treated with compassion" synonyms: pity, sympathy, feeling, fellow feeling, empathy, understanding, care, concern, solicitude, solicitousness, sensitivity, tender-heartedness, soft-heartedness, warm-heartedness, warmth, love, brotherly love, tenderness, gentleness, mercy, mercifulness, leniency, lenience, tolerance, consideration, kindness, humanity, humaneness, kind-heartedness, charity, benevolence "she gazed with compassion at the two dejected figures" - "A crushed reed He shall not break,& smoking flax he shall not quench,till he brings forth right ruling forever."

Reading through from Romans 12:1-20 we see the compassion of Yahusha in the face of death-defying danger. We also see the Prushim (priests) as the BYNV calls them - always accusing Yahusha. Look, they said to Him, "Your talmidim are doing what is not right to do on Shabath! Feeding on the corn." Yahusha gave back a reference to the priests of Daud going to the house of Alahim and feeding on the showbread which was only for the priests. Then Yahusha said "5.Or did you not read in the Turah that on the Shabath the priests in the Set-Apart place profane the Shabath. 6.But I say to you in this place there is One greater than the Set-Apart Place. And if you had know what this means, 'I desire compassion and not offering,' you would not have condemned the blameless."For the Son of Adam is Master of the Shabath."

There are two very different behaviours here: one is cold, regimented and cruel tradition - the other behaviour is loving and compassionate. Yahusha not only reveals their use of Turah out of context but always gives many examples of how He wants His talmidim to behave today. Yahusha then turned and went into the assembly and see there was a man having a lame hand. The prushim asked Yahusha "Is it right to heal on the Shabath, so as to accuse him". Yahusha then gave the example of a sheep falling into a pit on the Shabath and of course we would pull it out. "How much more worth is a man than a sheep? Stretch out your hand said Yahusha to the man and it was restored as healthy as the other one. Then Yahusha said, "So it is good to do right on the Shabath."Even with such obvious proof the prushim ignored the miracle and were trying to figure out how they could kill him for the miracle He had done. Yahusha blew through from there and waiting for Him was a massive crowd of the sick. So He healed them all, so that scripture would be fulfilled. Read the rest yourself . . .

Just imagine being a 'Fly on the Wall', in those days and put yourself in the shoes of a simple husband, watching Yahusha deal with the priests as He put them in their place. Yahusha then comes over to restore the lame hand right in front of your own eyes. Yahusha has such gentleness and compassion. Before you can say "Jack Robinson" Yahusha is in the middle of a crowd of hundreds of sick people and He is healing everyone of them from all kinds of ailments and diseases with such love. It is amazing. Are you that husband watching? What an experience you are having seeing the miraculous, loving compassion of Yahusha who is Yahuah in the flesh. What a mighty mighty experience, we too can see Yahusha in the spirit as we roll through the pages of Turah - we also see the behaviour of the opposing priesthood of hate wanting to destroy Him. Tell me husband, as the fly on the wall, what sort of behaviour do you want to see raining in your home, compassion or rejection? Can we see the behaviour of priesthoods today?
