In Mark 6 we read about the evening Jesus astonished his disciples. They had asked him to make an announcement to a huge crowd that had been listening to him teach. It was getting late, and the disciples wanted Jesus to tell the people to walk to one of the local towns to get some food. Instead Jesus said, “You give them something to eat,” and he told the disciples to go and see what they had on hand. Imagine how awestruck they felt when Jesus fed those thousands of men, women, and children with five loaves of bread and two fish. When we go and see the resources God has provided and then receive and share them, the results can be astounding.
