Lent: Day Twenty-six ~ Poetry Sunday

Matt. 8:1 When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him.

The Multitudes Shall Eat

Wayward legs they followed Him,
Into the desert they strode.
Not a care for food to eat
Their pace was surely slowed.

Compassion for the multitude
He raised a hand to speak.
“Feed the hungry as they come
For all the ones that seek.”

Five loaves of bread to feed the many
Two fish to fill the crowd.
Gathered were the faithful,
Now sitting all heads bowed.

“Bless this bread, I give to thee,”
He broke the loaves in two.
Dispersed to his disciples
with divinity it grew.

“Fill not only with food you eat,
but also with my Word.
Remember My Father blesses thee,
With all that you have heard.”

Mark 6:41 And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided he among them all.  [44] And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men. [52] For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened.

And you captured a small truth in this: that most of the people who came far out into the wilderness, to hear the Lord's words, took nothing with them but the desire to hear the Word! :D

Well done, Ma'am! :D <3
