Everyone knows about the feeding of the 5,000.

We chortle at those silly disciples who said they didn’t have enough food.

But really, which one of us aren’t like those disciples?

Putting up road blocks when Jesus commands us to do the most basic things.

Jesus says, “Love your neighbor.”

We say, “We tried, Lord, but they were so mean.”

It happens over and over again. We resist the overwhelming love that is shown by Jesus.

Lucky for us, Jesus will never stop trying to get us to pull the impossible.

Have you resisted something that might have been a command from God? How did things work out?
