TOPIC: THE COMPASSIONATE JESUS

TEXT: John 6: 1-14(KJV)
6:1. After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias.
6:2. And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased.
6:3. And Jesus went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his disciples.
6:4. And the passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh.
6:5. When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat?

6:6. And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do.
6:7. Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.
6:8. One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, saith unto him,
6:9. There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?
6:10. And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.

6:11. And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.
6:12. When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.
6:13. Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.
6:14. Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world.

Anglican Daily Fountain 8th February 2024 STUDY:

A great multitude followed Jesus while He and His disciples went up and sat down on the mountain. Though already knowing what to do, He asked Philip where they could buy food for the large multitude. However, another disciple, Andrew, informed Him that a young boy had five barley loaves and two small fish. Jesus instructed that the about 5000 men be made to sit down. He took the loaves, gave thanks to God and gave His disciples to distribute to the men. He did same for the fish. After all the men had eaten and were filled, twelve baskets of bread fragments were recovered, and the men testified that the expected Prophet had come.

Out of great compassion, Jesus gave hospitality to about 5000 men. An observant Andrew informed Jesus of some available loaves of bread and fish. A young boy sacrificed his lunch to Jesus for a miraculous feeding of the multitude. Are you a hospitable person that readily receives visitors into your home? Are you observant of what happens in your home, work place or church? Learn from Andrew and the boy. Please give useful information to your parents or leaders at school, office, the church or community. Show compassion to others. Give something to someone today!

PRAYER: Grant me a compassionate heart, O God.
