Today’s reading: John 6:1-15
One of the things that always stands out when I read passages about Jesus is his love, care and compassion for people–and not just some people or certain kinds of people–ALL people. So as a massive crowd of people follow after and gather around Jesus, his attention instantly turns to the physical needs of the people (food and a place to sit). As Jesus quenches their physical needs, he prepares them to hear about and hopefully receive their ultimate need–salvation.
Do you share a love of ALL people with Jesus? What’s one example of how you have shown God’s love to someone in need (physically, financially, emotionally, spiritually) in the past weeks? How does coming alongside to help someone with a physical need often open the door for us to then share Jesus’s salvation with them? Tami
