Don't Overlook Jesus
Looking back at the accounts of Jesus, it's easy for us to think, had we been in the position of the disciples, we would have done things differently. I for one am glad that there isn't someone looking at the details of my life and critiquing them for all to see. But the fact remains that Jesus was the all powerful, Son of God. Things that seem concrete for us don't hold back an all-powerful God, they're opportunities. John 6 shows us a great crowd of hungry people that Jesus fed with a young boys simple lunch. The disciples, if given the opportunity could've stressed, worried and let that situation destroy their mental and physical well-being, but to Jesus it was an opportunity for a miracle. If we're not careful today we can forget that Jesus is still the same all-powerful, miracle worker who is working on our behalf.
