you feed them
Jesus freaks out the disciples twice in today's reading. once by doing something "impossible" (walking on water), and once by asking THEM to do something impossible.
that's what Jesus does. He shows us how amazing God is... and then He asks us to do something about it.
there are always needs... everyone has them. in the world today, there are so many who need love, food, jobs, a home... the list goes on.
we look at God and say "why aren't you doing something about this?"
and God says "you feed them."
but He doesn't stop there. Jesus didn't sit back and wait for His disciples to realize that they couldn't do it. He had them look to see what they had, and then bring it to Him.
that's what He tells us to do. look at what you have, and bring it to Jesus. then He will multiply it, and make it not only meet the needs that you thought were so overwhelming, but surpass those needs.
God please help me love your children.
