Give them something to eat
There’s little doubt that good things happen around meals with one another. God seems to be on that program too given that the opening pages of the Bible have descriptions of what’s good to eat and what isn’t. The number one way Jesus’ death for us is remembered is with food (bread and wine/juice). And, the whole of human history will culminate in a wedding feast!
In Luke 9:10-17 Jesus tells the 12 apostles to feed the 5000+ people who have gathered to hear him preach and see him heal. They have no idea how to get that done, but Jesus performs yet another miracle that tells us a whole lot about who he is. And that, of course, has implications for us. We look at that account in this message.
