Feeding the Four Thousand

32 Now Jesus called his disciples and said, “I feel sorry for the crowd because they have been with me for three days and have nothing to eat. I don’t want to send them away hungry for fear they won’t have enough strength to travel.” 33 His disciples replied, “Where are we going to get enough food in this wilderness to satisfy such a big crowd?” 34 Jesus said, “How much bread do you have?” They responded, “Seven loaves and a few fish.” 35 He told the crowd to sit on the ground. 36 He took the seven loaves of bread and the fish. After he gave thanks, he broke them into pieces and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. 37 Everyone ate until they were full. The disciples collected seven baskets full of leftovers. 38 Four thousand men ate, plus women and children. 39 After dismissing the crowds, Jesus got into the boat and came to the region of Magadan. (Matthew 15:32-39, CEB)

Now here again we do not know how many people were fed, because they counted 4000 men, but women and children also ate, so we don’t know how many the 7 loaves and few fish fed. In fact, we don’t know how many fish there were to begin with. But they all were fed and there were 7 baskets full leftover.

Jesus cam take a little bit and make it go a long way. That is why we should never think that we do not have enough. Jesus will always provide in the time of need what is necessary.

Know that it has happened and it will happen. Believe and trust in God.
