Jesus often taught large crowds of people. On this day, it was about 5000 men plus women and children. It was late in the day. The disciples said Jesus should send the crowds home for their evening dinner. Jesus had a different plan. He asked what food was available…it was food for only 1-2, then He blessed it and passed it on to those seated in groups of 50. Jesus is STILL challenging us… today… ‘You give them something to eat’. This pandemic has put a strain on millions of people. No jobs. No paychecks. No food. They need help… now! AND, there are many, many who are contributing to provide them with food. What a blessing!! What a miracle to see the donations… the volunteers… all to help the lines of people waiting for food.Help where you can… be part of the miracle(s) that are feeding millions here and now!!
Please pass on this verse to ALL your contacts on social media and on your email list. Ask if they have needed to receive food donations for their families. If not, ask if they have been able to donate food or money to help with contribute food donations. You will hear from people in both situations. Many NEVER thought that they would need to ask for help… but they need it now. Share with them the massive efforts that it takes to get food to these people each week. Remind them of the caring and sharing that is taking place in our land. Thank God for blessing people to be a blessing to others. Next, Take Time For God’s Word© daily or as you see people waiting in food lines or at 9:13 am or pm. Please put this verse as a Reminder on your phone for 9:13 am and copy the verse into the title. When it rings, be reminded that we are to ‘give them something to eat’… both physical food AND spiritual food from His Word. These eight words could become a powerful daily reminder. You will be a blessing… if you follow this request. You will be blessed in the process. He is the Bread of Life!
Our prayers now focus on the physicians, doctors, nurses, and ALL the medical personnel who have been on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic. We cannot thank them enough for their skills, commitment, and self-sacrifice. AND, we know this fight is not over. The virus will be with us for a long time to come. Help do what you can to care for those around you. It might be food…masks… face shields… lunches for staff… or just words of thanks. THANK YOU to those who are part of the medical teams across the country. Our prayers are with you… always. Stay well. Stay blessed. Pass it on to those who need Him as you give them His love as you give them something to eat!
