Wilderness becomes rich restaurant!


The blazing sun beating down on your back, a humid desert breeze sweeping across the wilderness as a great multitude is sitting, mesmerized by the words uttered by Jesus the Nazarene.

The feeding of the five thousand is a tale familiar to most Christians.  It was such a large crowd that Philip claimed that even 200 denarii worth of bread won’t feed the hungry crowd.  Jesus wanted the people to eat, so He asked the disciples what they had with them.  Now in that multitude was a young lad who had with him 2 fishes and 5 loaves of bread.

Jesus ordered his disciples to bring the basket of goodies the child had.  When He took the bread, He prayed for the food,  and the treats multiplied; enough to feed the hungry crowd.  After the crowd had left, Jesus said, “Gather up the fragments that remain, so that nothing is lost.

Feeding 5K

After gathering the remaining tit-bits, the disciples found there was 12 baskets worth of food, a basket for each disciple.  After Jesus performed this miracle, many witnesses said that, “This is truly the Prophet who is to come into the world.”

Now, the Sterex observation!

Let’s Race to Stop Waste

This story teaches the little ones that Jesus wouldn’t want you to waste your food.  If you are a parent and you have a full-child problem, just tell them that Jesus wouldn’t want you to waste.  Jesus took care to seeing that nothing was wasted.  Have you ever heard your pastor talking about WWJD.  This stands for: “What would Jesus Do?”  I recommend teaching this tip to your children.  Jesus wouldn’t waste, so you shouldn’t either!
