Jesus Works Through His Followers to Help the Hungry

The story of Jesus feeding a crowd of over five thousand is hard to forget. People are hungry but there’s not enough food. The need is great—overwhelmingly so—yet Jesus’ power is greater, and he responds as only he can: with miraculous provision. Five loaves and two fish become enough food for thousands—with leftovers! And how does Christ distribute this food? Not by clapping his hands or snapping his fingers to feed everyone in seconds, but by asking his disciples to hand out the loaves and fishes to those in need. His disciples are more than mere witnesses to this remarkable moment of provision—they are active workers in it.
