“When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.” John 6:12
The story of Jesus feeding the five thousand is one of the most inspiring stories in the Bible and it is often used to encourage brethren to believe in God’s great power and mercy. Jesus’ feeding of the five thousand reminds us of Jesus’ compassion for His people. The character of Jesus is exhibited in this part of the passage. His compassion is without bounds that even if He had traveled far, healed the sick, and did so many things, His priority was still the crowd that followed Him (John 3:16).
This scenario of Jesus feeding 5,000 people supports the fact that Jesus is the Lord that saves His people. His compassion is so boundless that He gave His life for His children who are, by the way, sinners.
Beloved, there are many times when we are asked by God to help others in need, especially around us. That is similar to the very scenario that happened during the feeding of the five thousand.
My Lord Jesus, grant me grace to have compassion for people around me as you had for the five thousand people. Amen
