We like to think that we don’t need anyone else to survive. “I can do it all by myself,” we say. However, life simply doesn’t work that way. No matter how smart, strong, or capable we are, we need others to survive. Further, we need a spiritual power beyond ourselves to not only survive but thrive. As Jesus feeds the hungry crowd with only five loaves and two fish, he also feeds his disciples with a deeper understanding of who he is and who God is. Jesus doesn’t chastise the disciples. Instead, he invites them, just as he invites us, to bring our need to God. Only then can we receive the miraculous provision that is in store for us.
