1 Kings 12:26-32, 13:33-34; Psalm 106:6-7, 19-22; Mark 8:1-10


Mark’s account of Jesus feeding the people begins with Jesus noting the crowd can’t be sent away hungry. The disciples question where they could possibly get bread in such a deserted place. Jesus then notes that the disciples themselves have food – so why not share it, he suggests! Perhaps they then found that other people also had food with them, and the miracle of sharing began!

When we meet a need in others, Jesus only asks that we give from what we have, and he will do the rest.
