How to feed 20,000 people in one sitting

"Karsten Gottschalk. He's the executive chef at the Armed Forces Officers Club & Hotel in Abu Dhabi, and it's his busiest time of year. Gottschalk's job during Ramadan is to feed at least 20,000 people every day....The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque commissions Gottschalk's kitchen to prepare meals for people to break their fast at the mosque. Gottschalk leads a 500-strong team in the kitchen, and cooking starts at 6 a.m. During the working day, 7,000 kilos of vegetables are peeled and diced, 5,000 kilos of rice boiled in vast pots and 10,000 chickens cut in two and roasted."

Why is this miracle the one that all four writers made sure to tell?
Because it shows us something important about the nature of our generous, faithful, loving God:
He longs to bless us. The more we are participants in that blessing, the more we are blessed.
Show up, come hungry, come expecting to see God at work.
The disciples couldn't see any way in which this little bit of food would feed 20,000 people. Maybe they forgot who they were with?
Where are you seeing a situation, and noticing a need? Maybe you're saying, “Somebody needs to do something about that.”
If we will show up, and if we will come hungry and with expectation for God to be present and to help us do whatever he’s given us the vision to do, who knows what might happen?
What do you have?
How might it be the blessing someone else needs?
What’s in your basket?
