God’s Word: MAR 8:2-3

Mark 8:2‑3  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 5
They have now been with Me three days, and have nothing to eat; and if I send them away fasting  .  .    they will faint by the way.
What an example these people are to us! They so hungered after the words of eternal life that they followed Jesus into the wilderness without taking enough physical food for the journey. Some were so hungry after three days that they would not have made it home if they didn’t have a meal before they left. Jesus does not forsake or disappoint those who cast themselves on Him. They had put their lives into the hands of Jesus and it was in those hands that the loaves and the fishes were multiplied. Jesus will not let us down either. He’ll provide for our needs - according to His riches.
