Jesus Sighed

September 15, 2008 Leave a comment

It’s a really bad sign when Jesus sighs in exasperation at you, isn’t it?

The Pharisees, in verses 11-13, manage to get under Jesus’ skin by asking him for a sign.

Jesus simply replies, “No.”

When I get exasperated, how often do I offer a simple “No” rather than a justification and an explanation?  Sometimes, “No” is enough!

Jesus Feeds the 4000

September 15, 2008 Leave a comment

Again, Jesus miraculously feeds a huge number of people with a tiny offering.

This illustrates that although God can create something out of nothing, there is great value in our bringing our gifts and offerings to him.

God loves a cheerful giver. Am I a cheerful giver?
