But Jesus said "you feed them." "But we have only five loaves of bread and two fish." They answered. "Or are you expecting us to go and buy enough food for this whole crowd?" For there were about 5,000 men there. Jesus replied, "Tell them to sit down in groups of about fifty each." When the disciples expressed concern about where the crowd of thousands would eat, Jesus offered a surprising solution: "You feed them." The disciples protested, focusing their attention on what they didn't have-food and money. Do you think God would ask you to do something that you and he together couldn't handle? Don't let your lack of resources blind you to seeing God's power. Blessings!

Those that come to know God well are not overly concerned about anything. They know God's power and know that if it is will, nothing is impossible. Faith can move mountains! Keep reading God's word!

Wow. That hit the nail on the head. Why is it that we have to be reminded over and over? And how is it that He has the patience to do so?

One more interpretion we can get from this is; We always worried about this worldly things and what we have. We think we cannot provide to others especially the word of GOD. Most of the times we think we are not good enough to share the word of GOD and lack of resources for doing GOD work. But, GOD will always help us and provide for us so wwe will not come short. When we think we can share the word of GOD, we are not just helping others but also ourselves. In the end we have the leftover that is the extra knowledge we get from it.
