Today's Good News


11/04 Luke 9:14
For there were about five thousand men there. “Just tell them to sit down on the ground in groups of about fifty each,” Jesus replied. 15 So the people all sat down. 16 Jesus took the five loaves and two fish, looked up toward heaven, and asked God’s blessing on the food. Breaking the loaves into pieces, he kept giving the bread and fish to the disciples to give to the people. 17 They all ate as much as they wanted, and they picked up twelve baskets of leftovers!
How do you define success? Notice that here Jesus feeds 5,000 men plus women and children. He did that by bringing honor to God and not man. He fed people. His concern was for people. Jesus died for people. God’s definition of success includes taking care of people. Does your definition of success include taking care of people?
