"Give ye them to eat"

In the Gospel records are two much-loved stories, telling of how Jesus fed the multitude which had followed him to hear his teaching about God. These demonstrations are remarkable examples of Jesus' ability to overcome the beliefs of lack and limitation, and anyone who studies them and applies the same rule may expect to overcome the beliefs of limitation which confront him.

There are several details which these two episodes have in common. We are told that after the people had heard the Word they were in need of food, and that Jesus instructed his disciples to give it to them. The disciples had at hand some of the needed supply, but to their limited vision it seemed too little to meet so great a demand. But they were obedient and gave what they had to the Master, who blessed and brake and returned it to the disciples to be distributed among the multitude. After all had eaten and been filled, the disciples gathered up much more than they had had in the beginning.
