When some people hear the story of how Jesus fed a multitude with five barley loaves and two fish, they stumble at the supernatural aspect. However, I have always been just as impressed with the morality seen in this story as I have been the miraculous. Let us count the ways. I list seven – one day at a time.
1. Jesus had been preaching to thousands for some time and became concerned about their lack of sustenance. Jesus was willing to have compassion on others and go out of His way to help them. Do you provide food to people in such situations or are you more focused on when and where you’re going to have your own lunch? Even if you are more thoughtful of other people’s lunches than you are your own, most people aren’t.
