It took the disciples 5 fish, 5 loaves of bread to feed the multitudes that came to see Jesus speak. Think about it Jesus never passed a plate around for an offering. He passed a plate around to feed the people. It is important to note that churches as we know them today had not been established yet. People in those days met in each other's homes. To sing and speak words of God and what they wished him to do. When Jesus came along the praying, teachings etc. were held in open areas. Jesus always had a story or parable to tell of so that the people could understand what God was all about. And who he was to them. The scriptures tell of many a gathering and many a miracle. We need to review those stories every now and then. Just to remember that Jesus gave, he did not receive any money, or special treatment. It does pay to look at the houses of worship in our day and age. Is the flock being fed? Are there shenanigans going on behind the scenes?
Luke 9:20 But what about you?" he asked. "Who do you say I am?" Peter answered, "God's Messiah."
