Jesus thanks God for what He has

When a great crowd had nothing to eat, Jesus called His disciples to Him and said, “I’m concerned about this crowd. For three days they’ve stayed with me without anything to eat. If I send them away hungry to their homes, they’ll faint on the way – and some have come a great distance.” The disciples replied, “How can anyone feed so many people, here in this desolate place?” But Jesus (who relied on more than evidence) replied: “How much bread do you have?” “Seven little loaves,” they said. So Jesus ordered the crowd to sit down on the ground, and He took the seven loaves and gave thanks for what they had. Then Jesus broke the bread and gave the food to His disciples to distribute. And they also had a few little fish, which Jesus blessed before His disciples distributed that food too. And it was good. And it was blessed. And the little became more than enough to feed 4,000 with food left to fill seven baskets full. ©2013 Mary Harwell Sayle
