Everybody is hungry. Jesus is offered a little boy’s lunch. Jesus prays. The disciples pass out food. Everyone eats. There are lots of leftovers. The end.
Do we talk too much?
No matter who first thought it up or said it, the fact remains. Two things are hated, feared, and yet guaranteed: death and taxes. This has been a fact of life for as long as humanity has been around.
When push came to shove, each had an opportunity to examine their own heart and say, “There but for the grace of God, go I.”
I think I would have been one of the ones who had a little trouble with the manna gathering. Most of the people of Israel did quite well at gathering up each day just what they needed for that day. But some of the Israelites tried to gather up extra. I don’t blame them.
Even though we have been walking through the valley of the shadow of death does not mean we have any cause to give in to fear.
There is one question that I do not dare ask…
Do we dare risk such an encounter knowing that our lives, once God shows up, will never again be the same.
No matter where we are in our walk in life, there are promises of God we can hang our hat on that are as good as gold.
He lived exactly as he was expected to live.
