Behind Matthew 14:15-21

Jesus saw the huge crowd as he stepped from the boat, and he had compassion on them and healed their sick. That evening the disciples came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late. Send the crowds away so they can go to the villages and buy food for themselves.” But Jesus said, “That isn’t necessary—you feed them.” “But we have only five loaves of bread and two fish!” they answered. Then he told the people to sit down on the grass. Jesus took the five loaves and two fish, looked up toward heaven, and blessed them. Then, breaking the loaves into pieces, he gave the bread to the disciples, who distributed it to the people. They all ate as much as they wanted, and afterward, the disciples picked up twelve baskets of leftovers. About 5,000 men were fed that day, in addition to all the women and children! (Matthew 14:14-17, 19-21 NLT)

Some days it feels as though we barely have enough energy to make it until bedtime. Every item on our to-do list feels as though it weighs a ton. Every relationship seems like it requires more of an investment than we are able to make. Yet life doesn’t stand still while we muster up more inner strength. We have to take care of things immediately.

Jesus put his disciples in a position of living beyond their resources too. The good news is that they needed only to offer him what they had—​which wasn’t much, not nearly enough to meet the need. But our resources paired with Jesus’ resources always equals enough, even when our resources are pitifully small. He multiplies whatever we offer. All we have to do is offer it.

And the BIG WORD : T.R.U.S.T

Cling to God and His teachings!

God Bless everyone!
