The word of the day is “equip.” Living a life of leadership and servanthood begins with making a foundation that is strong upon which God can build. JC models this in the book of Mark. in this following passage it is the second time that he feeds a mass of peeps, teaching his disciples how they can provide food for everyone present. the deeper lesson is that the Father can and will provide for al of our needs; we need only to look toward that fulfillment and trust his ways.
“After Jesus gave thanks for the fish, he told his followers to give them to the people also. All the people ate and were satisfied. Then his followers filled seven baskets with the leftover pieces of food.”
My question is: how is JC equipping you for new opportunities this year? In this passage he allows teh disciples to grow from consumers to contributors. he gives them what they need, while showing them how to serve others in the process. My prayer is that God gives you a heart that focuses on serving others, and that he equips you with the ability to make a difference for the Kingdom.
Praying for you,
