As I have told many of you, there are many things in the scriptures that make me ponder.  Here is one !  If Jesus already had a plan to feed thousands of people, why would he ask his disciples to solve the problem.  He could have miraculously removed their hunger or made food materialize right before each person. Yet instead he made his disciples central to this miracle by providing  a few fish and loaves of bread.  Jesus wanted them to be a part of what he was going to do.  So he asked them how to feed the crowd.  Jesus solution was so stunning people still talk about it today.

Jesus never stops working through his followers.  He never stops making us an essential part of his plan.  Imperfect as we are, Jesus asks for our participation so that we can see more and more of his ways.  He takes our meager offerings and multiplies them beyond our expectation so we can grow in trust and be more willing to step out in faith !

In the end, Jesus’ plan is much bigger than our abilities and so is his desire for us to be a part of it.
