Jesus was teaching a multitude of people. It was late in the day. It was a desolate place and there was nothing to eat.
The disciples thought it would be a good idea to send the people away into the surrounding villages to buy food.
Imagine sending needy people away from Jesus!
Jesus replied, “They do not need to go away; you give them something to eat.”
They said to Him, “We have only five loaves here and two fish.”
And He said, “Bring them here to Me.”
Jesus took the five loaves and two fish, gave thanks to God, and gave an abundance of food to the disciples to distribute to the crowd.
When you are in despair, when life doesn’t make sense, seek Jesus.
When you hurt, when you suffer loss, seek Jesus.
When you don’t feel like seeking Jesus, seek Jesus.
You will find Him where He has promised to be—where His people gather in His name every Lord’s Day.
