Do you ever feel done in, exhausted and ready for a retreat?
Jesus's disciples knew how that felt. One time, fairly early in His ministry, He sent them out to all the surrounding cities, telling them to not even take provisions for themselves. They were to preach, heal and cast out demons.
When they came back, their faith was stretched, their eyes were opened to the power of God and they were worn out.
Jesus had compassion on them and took them out in the middle of nowhere so they could rest.
But it was not to be - Jesus could not be hidden and throngs of people followed them. So Jesus preached & healed.
And then all the people were hungry.
Now the Son of God could've asked for manna from Heaven or created a banquet in the wilderness. But He didn't.
He turned to the disciples.
"You feed them," He said.
