Mark (NIV) 8:4 His disciples answered, “But where in this remote place can anyone get enough bread to feed them?” 5 “How many loaves do you have?” Jesus asked. “Seven,” they replied.
8 The people ate and were satisfied. Afterwards the disciples picked up seven basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. 9 About four thousand men were present. And having sent them away,
Observation: Jesustook what they had (seven loaves) and multiplied it to feed 4000 men.
Application: I maybe looking for the closest grocery store I may be looking for a buried treasureI may be looking for a generous benefactor but Jesus is looking for what Ihave. Jesus starts with what Ihave.
Prayer: HeavenlyFather, you have already demonstrated your willingness to give. Now you are waiting for me to demonstrate mywillingness to give. I do not haveenough to meet the need, but what I have can be the seed you multiply. I only have what you have so generously givenme. Find me generous too. Amen
Making friends for time and eternity!
