And You Have What You Need Today, Too

by Andrew Forrest

Yesterday’s lesson: you have what you need.

Today’s lesson: you have what you need today, too.

The disciples have seen amazing things happen in the name of Jesus. But immediately after their successful ministry trip, they are then confronted with another problem: a huge, hungry crowd. And it’s as if the size of this problem has caused them to forget everything they previously learned. So, Jesus teaches them again as he uses 5 loaves and 2 fish to feed the five thousand.

The point: in the name of Jesus, you always have what you need, even when it seems as if you don’t. Don’t let the size of the problem intimidate you.

Today’s Scripture:

Luke 9:10-17

Before gong to bed at night, and would read aloud to Fred the scripture of the day from the gospel books you provided. The picture you posted today is such a great visualization of feeding the 5000. How can one not be in awe of Jesus and his compassion? I’ve been feeling like his disciples. I get where they’re coming from. Today’s reading is such a encouraging passage for me personally.
