SEEING THINGS IN THEIR TRUE PROPORTIONS

Probably few of the recorded works of the Master are more loved and more, frequently cited than his feeding of the five thousand. Grasping the profound lesson of the true nature of substance or supply to be learned from Jesus' demonstration of the power of God to provide for man has been of inestimable value to those receptive to the lesson.

An important point to be considered in this so-called miracle is the steadfastness displayed by Jesus in refusing to permit anything to interfere with the most important need of the moment, namely, his sharing more of his teachings with the multitude. When the disciples urged Jesus to send the people away in order that they might buy food for themselves, he said (Matt. 14: 16),"They need not depart; give ye them to eat." Without this ability to see the essential need in every situation and provide for it, he could never have accomplished his mission within the brief period of three years. With it, it was inconceivable to him that anything thing could stand in the way of his mighty works.
