Stand outside for a few minutes. Notice what you see. Is there anything that needs attention? Is there anything that you need to do with or because of what you see?
Read the following:
14 The disciples had forgotten to bring bread, except for one loaf they had with them in the boat. 15 “Be careful,” Jesus warned them. “Watch out for the yeast of the Pharisees and that of Herod.”
16 They discussed this with one another and said, “It is because we have no bread.”
17 Aware of their discussion, Jesus asked them: “Why are you talking about having no bread? Do you still not see or understand? Are your hearts hardened? 18 Do you have eyes but fail to see, and ears but fail to hear? And don’t you remember? 19 When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many basketfuls of pieces did you pick up?”
“Twelve,” they replied.
20 “And when I broke the seven loaves for the four thousand, how many basketfuls of pieces did you pick up?”
They answered, “Seven.”
21 He said to them, “Do you still not understand?” Mark 8:14-21
Is there anything that you have been focused on that is not important? What have you been looking for in the wrong way?
What was Jesus trying to say to the disciples in the passage above? Does this in any way relate to you and your perspective?
What needed to shift in the disciple’s eyes?
What needs to shift in your eyes?
