Several things besides the miracle...
Several things besides the miracle should grab our attention concerning Jesus feeding
5,000 people from five loaves of bread and two fish. First, Jesus knew how to avoid food
riots. The people were hungry and free food would soon be available. I've seen folks
under similar circumstances go almost crazy in the effort to get theirs first. Jesus avoided
that problem by having the people sit on the grass.
Second, Jesus was well organized. Mark (6:40) tells us that he had the people sit in
groups of hundreds and fifties. Third, Jesus blessed (gave thanks for) the food.
