Feeding Five Thousand

135. Feeding Five Thousand

I was re-reading a sermon I preached some years ago about the feeding of the five thousand. The scripture for that particular sermon was Matthew 14:13-21. And the verse that struck me then—and now was where Jesus says that the crowd doesn’t have to go away. And he says “You give them something to eat.” And the disciples say, “We have nothing here but five loaves and two fish.” And He said, “Bring them here to me.”

What strikes me is that so often I say “Well, I just have this…” or “You know I just have this bit of time here…” or “I can just do this one thing…” And I imagine Jesus continuing to say “Bring it here to me.”

All these excuses—all the putting down—all the evasions. I’m not being asked to be a rocket scientist. I’m being asked to bring what I have — to do the one thing — to give the amount of time I can give. Just that. And I don’t need to knock it—just offer it.
