Luke 9:1-17

“Take nothing for the journey — no staff, no bag, no bread, no money,
no extra tunic.” (v. 3)

These are the instructions Jesus gave the 12 when He sent them out in
His name. And yet how often do I worry or complain that I don’t have
all I need? Or… want? Jesus wants us to trust Him.

Just a few verse later, Jesus dramatically illustrates His point when
miraculously feeds 5000 people. God is more than able to provide for
our needs, and in this case gave the people more than they needed, as
the 12 baskets of leftovers show.

God will take care of us as we trust Him with our lives and follow His lead.

As Jesus says elsewhere, “seek first his kingdom and his
righteousness, and all all these things will be given to you as well.”
(Matthew 6:33)
