Walking into the Storm with the Bread from Heaven
When we’re reading scripture, we have to learn to look beyond the surface meaning so that we can see the teaching embedded within the text. The disciples had to learn this the hard way. When Jesus told them to feed the people, they only thought of physical bread. And, when they were told to go out into the world, they became scarred of a storm. What they didn’t realize is that bread is more than bread, and storms can be faced when they put their trust in Christ. The question for us: will we be like the disciples and waver in our faith, or will we be loyal to the commission given to us by our Lord and walk the Way?
