Day 290

Today’s Reading – Matthew 14, Mark 3, and Luke 9

He replied, “You give them something to eat.”

But they said, “We have no more than five loaves of bread and two fish—unless we go and buy food for all these people.”  Luke 9:13 CEB

Jesus had to be disappointed in the response from the disciples.

After all they had already witnessed.

After all they had already done.

They couldn’t see the opportunity before them.

How often we must disappoint Jesus, when all we can see is scarcity.

How often we fail to see the abundant possibilities that are in front of us.

How many times have we missed the chance to “feed five thousand” because we refused to act – only seeing our limits and missing the possibilities of what we could with Jesus.

Remove the blindfold and see the abundance in your life today.


I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
