Come To The Table.
And what if there’s no table?
Wherever people are gathered outside all day, a picnic is bound to break out.
We all have a mom, sister, or bestie who never leaves home for a whole day without packing sandwiches, granola bars, and fruit. Just in case.
And boy, aren’t we grateful when we get way out there, and the trip is taking longer than anticipated, and the back roads offer few choices for nourishment?
“This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late. Send the crowds away so they can go to the nearby farms and villages and buy something to eat.”
But Jesus said, “You feed them.”
Mark 6:35-37 NLT
And that’s what happened one day as Jesus stood on a hillside speaking to at least 5,000 men, and wives plus children. So many people gathered for a whole day and no food trucks anywhere. They had to be hungry and thirsty.
