How Many Loaves?
Verse: John 6:1-15
Extra Scripture Readings:
The one miracle reported in every of the 4 Gospels—moreover the resurrection—is the feeding of the 5 thousand. If a reality is price telling 4 occasions, it should be price listening to.
It most likely appeared ridiculous to Philip to even contemplate feeding 5,000 males (and about 10,000 ladies and youngsters). Jesus’ response in Mark 6:38 was easy: “What number of loaves do you’ve?” And with the meager assets at hand, just a few loaves and fish, Jesus fed the hungry.
More often than not we don’t understand what number of “loaves” we’ve. We don’t understand the various methods we will feed these round us. With the night meal, we will serve up a loaf of encouragement to a dejected teenager. With a cup of espresso, we will serve a loaf of help to a brand new mother in our neighborhood. With a easy brown-bag lunch, we will serve up a contented time, mountain climbing with our little ones. God takes our “loaves” and nourishes the wants of these round us. Let’s eat!
