God Gold of the Day
“But the disciples had forgotten to bring any food. They had only one loaf of bread with them in the boat. As they were crossing the lake, Jesus warned them, “Watch out! Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and of Herod.” At this they began to argue with each other because they hadn’t brought any bread. Jesus knew what they were saying, so he said, “Why are you arguing about having no bread? Don’t you know or understand even yet? Are your hearts too hard to take it in? ‘You have eyes—can’t you see? You have ears—can’t you hear?’ Don’t you remember anything at all? When I fed the 5,000 with five loaves of bread, how many baskets of leftovers did you pick up afterward?” “Twelve,” they said. “And when I fed the 4,000 with seven loaves, how many large baskets of leftovers did you pick up?” “Seven,” they said. “Don’t you understand yet?” he asked them.”
The disciples only had one loaf of bread, we don’t have much of anything, we’re incapable of producing anything. These questions Christ ask, sit on these today, think about what He’s saying. Without Christ we have nothing but with Christ we have more than enough, He supplies us with everything thing we need and then comes in with leftovers. We don’t have to try harder, to do anything more, we’ll always have little to nothing, the only thing we need is Christ, chase your need of Him and you’ll have more than you could ever ask for!
