The miracles of Christ were, almost all of them, mere acts of benevolence. He was poor; he had neither raiment nor money to give; and yet there was suffering round about him, and he relieved it.
The miracles of Christ were never wrought in an ostentatious way. Never were they wrought for the purpose of exalting himself. They were not employed by Him when arguments failed, to carry men away by superstitious enthusiasm.
Multitudes resorted to Him for help—the sick, the blind, the deaf, lepers, all kinds of unfortunate people; and miracles were His means of bestowing charity upon them.
No hospital had He to which He could send them; He was His own hospital. His miracles were His general acts of kindness. As laid down in the gospel they represent the heart of God.—BEECHER.
