Jesus Feeds Us

“Then he ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and two fish, he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke the loaves and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. And all ate and were filled; they took what was left over of the broken pieces, twelve baskets full.”

-Matthew [14:19]-20


Jesus feeds us both spiritually and through the provisions of our lives. When we look to the world for spiritual renewal and our bounty, we are always left looking for more. We develop a fear of scarcity, which in turn drives us to want more. We are never satisfied. Through are faithful belief in Jesus, scarcity and want disappears. In turn, we become more generous and in return, we give back. Our fearful nature that causes us to be miserly is replaced with a spirit of generosity. We give because Jesus feeds us.

Points of Reflection

  • How have you felt Jesus feeding you, either spiritually or physically?
  • Why do the things of this world always seem to be just out of grasp?
  • How do we acquire a spirit of generosity or relieve ourselves of want?

Blessings, until next time,
