The other day I was reading the story where Jesus feeds 5,000 people with 2 fish and 5 loaves of bread. His disciples told him the crowd was getting hungry, so Jesus said, "Well, then go find some food". Yes, this was an amazing miracle...but it seems like He was trying to get the disciples to be pro-active and do something about the situation, not just stand there and wait for Him to do take action.
When I read Jesus' statement, "Go feed the people", it brings me to another conclusion. Last weekend I had the opportunity do concerts around Milwaukee and Chicago. 2 days before the concerts I had junk building up in my chest & throat. It was frustrating for me because I didn't feel I could sing very well...just squeak. I read this story Friday morning - day of the first concert - and thought about it all day. I think Jesus was simply saying to me, "Go feed my people. I'm giving you this opportunity & you still have a voice, so use the best that you have to love and encourage someone tonight." And that's what we did. :)
