Something Smells Fishy

November 17, 2009

In Matthew 14, Jesus is hanging out preaching to a few thousand people. The disciples are getting pretty hungry and restless, urging Jesus to wrap it up so they could go eat. Jesus wants to know why the disciples aren’t just going to hang out and break bread with all the townspeople and the disciples calmly explain to Jesus that they simply don’t have enough food to feed a few thousand people (seriously? Why not?) nor do they have the money to do so.

Jesus knows just what to do. He takes some bread and some fish from a kid and hands it out to the disciples to pass out among the townspeople. He keeps on handing. And handing. And the disciples keep on passing. And turns out, this little bit of fish and bread feeds thousands of people. Pretty amazing, huh? It was His way of showing the disciples that if they trusted Him, He would provide.

I also find it pretty amazing that The Simple Lunch can feed a dozen plus people for under a dozen dollars. And we still have leftovers. This isn’t a one time fluke. This has happened every weekend for the past three weeks in a row.

I have seen first hand the really crazy stuff that can happen when you start trusting and believing. Now I just can’t wait to see what’s next.
