This week we’re focused on a shocking invitation from Jesus to feed a hungry world. Throughout your week I encourage you to find ways to learn more about poverty and how Jesus can use you to end it.
If you haven’t yet worshipped with your Grace family you can do so either on Facebook
If you are new to FAITH5, here’s how it works.
Set aside 5-10 minutes at the end of the day and do the following by yourself, with those in your household, or even with family/friends online:
Share…1 high and 1 low from the day.
As he went ashore, he saw a great crowd; and he had compassion for them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd; and he began to teach them many things. 35 When it grew late, his disciples came to him and said, “This is a deserted place, and the hour is now very late; 36 send them away so that they may go into the surrounding country and villages and buy something for themselves to eat.” 37 But he answered them, “You give them something to eat.” They said to him, “Are we to go and buy two hundred denarii worth of bread, and give it to them to eat?” 38 And he said to them, “How many loaves have you? Go and see.” When they had found out, they said, “Five, and two fish.” 39 Then he ordered them to get all the people to sit down in groups on the green grass. 40 So they sat down in groups of hundreds and of fifties. 41 Taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before the people; and he divided the two fish among them all. 42 And all ate and were filled; 43 and they took up twelve baskets full of broken pieces and of the fish. 44 Those who had eaten the loaves numbered five thousand men.
Talk…What do you have that Jesus can use to help feed the hungry? What are intentional ways you can follow Jesus by feeding our starving world? What are different ways you can remind yourself to pray each day for those who are hungry?
Pray…for each other. For our world. For our church. For our family and friends.
Bless…each other by making the sign of the cross on each other’s foreheads and say: The LORD Bless You and Keep You.
