Then Jesus called his disciples unto him, and said, I have
compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me
now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send
them away fasting, lest they faint in the way.
-- Matthew 15 verse 32          (Kings James Bible)

    Whether it is just one or a multitude, Jesus cares about
    those who stay the course to follow Him.  

    Even though He clearly understood the needs of the
    people and the sacrifices they had made, it was
    because they did not leave His presence to find
    substance on their own that they received a special
    blessing.  With compassion, Jesus made the decision
    not to send them away weak and empty.  Instead, using
    the little that they had, He created such abundance for
    them that none left empty.  He blessed all that were
    present until they were completely full.   

    The same is yet true today.  His compassion fails not for
    us too.  Walking with Christ is a journey like no other
    with opportunities to exit all along the way.  However, the
    reward for continuing to follow Him, even through times
    of inconvenience and unsuitable circumstances, will
    always be in His presence but never outside of it.

May God’s Word be your guide every day.

    34.  And Jesus saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? And
    they said, Seven, and a few little fishes.
    35.  And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground.
    36.  And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave
    thanks, and brake them, and gave to his disciples, and the
    disciples to the multitude.
    37.  And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the
    broken meat that was left seven baskets full.
    38.  And they that did eat were four thousand men, beside
    women and children.
    39.  And he sent away the multitude, and took ship, and came
    into the coasts of Magdala.
