April 30 Scripture Selection: Mark 6:30-56

Food for Thought: Mark6:37, 41

Jesus made sure that the miracle of the multiplication of food happened through the hands of the disciples, though they really didn’t grasp it at the time. Jesus got it started, but the disciples continued it as they kept passing it out. Jesus was constantly teaching and showing them what was possible through their own hands.

And through our hands, it can still happen, and does, even today. There have been many accounts of this type of miracle. I personally witnessed this in a village where the amount of food on hand was meager, and the number in attendance was greater than expected. After a quick prayer, we gave and gave, until everyone had their full. Then we had to decide what to do with the LEFT-OVERS which we determined should go to the neighbors who had not attended.

I’m wondering if our readers have had personal experiences such as this. If so, please share the testimony. This could be the perfect word of encouragement for someone who is in a similar situation and needs to see this miracle manifested.

      Dear readers: Just a reminder that today, May 1, is the National Day of Prayer. I encourage everyone to pray for the Nation both individually and corporately. All over the country people will be gathering at prayer breakfasts, City Hall, and around the flag pole.

    P.S. Many people don’t know that the National Day of Prayer is always the first Thursday in May.
