August 6, 2017 | The gospel story for this week is an old favourite about Jesus and his disciples that was told over and over again. It was told so many times that it has been recorded in all four gospels. This is the feeding of the 5,000.
The disciples wanted to send the crowds home because they were not equipped to take care of such a large number of people. They are in middle of nowhere. They had nothing more than two fish and five loaves of bread. They don’t have enough. They just don’t have enough to take care of all of these people.
Ever feel that way? Ever feel utterly overwhelmed by the world and your inability to do anything about it? Ever feel like you’re not enough?
