They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over Mat 14:20
Only miracle that has been mentioned in all four gospels, that Jesus performed during His ministry. 5000 men fed and were satisfied by just 5 loaves and 2 fish, also gathered 12 baskets of extra loaves. How did this miracle happen? Can a miracle of such magnitude happen in our times?
There was a need and Jesus seeing the need 1. Jesus had compassion: Mat 14:14, Mark 6:34, immediate response of Jesus after having compassion 2. Jesus spoke on people’ s behalf Mark 6:37, Mat 14:16 Luke 9:13 and as next step once he received the 5 bread and 2 fishes 3. Jesus directed people to be seated Mat 14:18,19, Mark 6:39, Luke 9:14 and final step that led to the provision 4 Jesus took and thanked Mat 14:19, mark 6:41, Luke 9:16, Jh 6:11
Prayer: Lord, we need your compassion, yes Lord we believe even today great miracles will happen for your name to be glorified. Amen.
