Jesus knew that many people have a scarcity mentality. Remember when, Jesus fed the crowd with a bit of fish and bread? And the apostles who represent a worldview of scarcity, advised Jesus against feeding the crowd. “But how will two fish and five loaves be enough for so many?” We see scarcity but Jesus sees abundance.
From time to time, Jesus used something to create something more. For instance, He used water to make wine. He used a fish’s mouth, to deliver a coin to pay Caesar’s tax. He fed a crowd of 5,000 by accepting a boys lunch that had been offered to him. Can these miracles still happen today? Pastor Fred will address that question in a message titled, “Foodini.”
