Read through the Gospels in a Year: Mark 8:1-13
Read the New Testament in a Year: 1 Corinthians 13
Have you ever overlooked an opportunity to serve someone because you doubted that God could use you to help him or her? The disciples had the same problem, and they still missed the point even after Christ used their meager resources to feed a second mega-crowd.
How willing are you to sacrifice in order to spend time with Jesus? In both feeding miracles, the disciples only saw the obstacles instead of seeing that “all things are possible with God”. Distance and money seem to be too major concerns and it’s just as true for us today in the Tri-State. Whether it’s chasing more or just not putting ourselves in proximity to need, we miss out too many times for an opportunity to make a difference in other’s lives. Stop for just a second and ask Jesus to help you overcome the obstacles in your own life.
