3 Short Lessons from Feeding the 5,000

From Mark 6:30-44 / 1. The disciple’s first response was to solve the problem practically. In fact, to tell God Himself HOW to solve the problem, but they made no inquiry of God as to why they may be in this strange situation. We need to go to the Lord with all our situations – right from the start.

2. Jesus then goads them further, but they still only think in terms of their own abilities or constraints but still haven’t asked: “Master, what shall we do?” Providence often has to lead us to our powerlessness before we will truly look to and depend upon Him.

3. Then they are taught the wondrous lesson that their bankruptcy is no impediment to Christ’s provision. And so it is for us as well. Look to Christ.
