Mark 6:30-44




“And He had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd.”  (v. 34)

  • You are like Jesus when you show compassion to those whom God has given you to shepherd.


“And He began to teach them many things.” (v. 34b)

  • The greatest need your child has, above all else, is to know the truth about Jesus.


“You give them something to eat.”  (v. 35-37)

  • Your children need to feast from your table, not the world’s table.


“How many loaves do you have?” (v. 38-44)

  • As a father you will fear that what you have isn’t enough, but God’s grace and provision is more than sufficient.
