Jesus had compassion. He loved being with people. He encouraged them. He fed them. The miraculous feeding of thousands of people is the only miracle recorded in all four gospels, except for the Resurrection. It wasn’t the raising of the dead or healing the blind that captured the attention of so many people. It was feeding them.
This event would be equivalent today of filling an entire stadium with people, who have come to hear and see Jesus, and Jesus feeds them all from nothing. It was recorded four different times by four different men, and witnessed by thousands. Matthew even tells of it happening twice. If this event were not true, they would have easily been discredited. But they weren’t. Jesus can make something out of nothing. He can fill your needs.
As we begin this wonderful holiday season of Thanksgiving and Christmas, share your food, be compassionate, and help others. You will be blessed.
Matthew 15:32-37 ~ Feeding of 4,000
