Genesis 14:18-20 • 1 Corinthians 11:23-26 • Luke 9:11b-17

“Give them some food yourselves.” — Luke 9:13

Have you ever noticed that sometimes adults will do things for you, but sometimes they ask you or tell you to do something for yourself? Why do you think that is?

Sometimes they do something for you that you can’t do for yourself yet—like driving you to sports practice. Sometimes they do something for you because they love you and want to do something nice, even though you could do it for yourself, like make your bed. Other times, they want you to do something for yourself to practice so you can do it on your own when they aren’t with you in the future, like learning how to cook something.

Jesus was kind of like a parent to his twelve apostles. He wanted them to learn that they shouldn’t always wait for him to do everything for them because if they tried, they could do amazing things too, like feed a huge crowd of people. He asked them to try first, and then he helped them, just like your parents do sometimes.

Pray together: Jesus, help us to do what we can to help others instead of waiting for you to do everything for us.

Discuss together: What can you do this week to feed or clothe others for Jesus?
