The Caring Jesus


Scripture: Mark 6:35-37

 Mark 6:35 When the day was now far spent, His disciples came to Him and said, “This is a deserted place, and already the hour is late.

 Mark 6:36 Send them away, that they may go into the surrounding country and villages and buy themselves bread; for they have nothing to eat.”

 Mark 6:37 But He answered and said to them, “You give them something to eat.”

And they said to Him, “Shall we go and buy two hundred denarii worth of bread and give them something to eat?”


Most likely in a plain outside of Bethsaida on the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee, Jesus and the Twelve are with a group of several thousand people. The word “desolate” is derived from the Greek word ermos and primarily means “uninhabited.” Although it is occasionally translated as “desert,” the word used to describe this region does not imply that it is harsh or lifeless. Instead, this region is covered in lush grass and close to villages (Mark 6:36). Instead of being a desolate wasteland, it more closely resembles the lush meadows of Psalm 23.

Anyone who truly followed the heavenly Father would realize that the Father was in Christ and that Christ was in the Father, according to The good news is that you can always turn back to Jesus if you feel like you have strayed from him. Turn to him in repentance, learn his ways, and follow him. He won’t ever abandon you.

My hypothesis is that the followers of Jesus sought a more effective means of displacing the crowds. Jesus never had such an idea; instead, he desired that God be exalted.

Let’s focus more closely on verse 37. You provide them with food. What is the meaning of that phrase?


We may interpret that differently, but these are my thoughts and the lessons I took away from that verse, in my opinion. For those whom God has placed in my care as flocks, I should always provide food (consider this to be spiritual food-daily digest). Additionally, it might not just be spiritual food; it might also be a simple need, care, concern, love, etc. Show them all to your flocks (disciples), as Jesus commanded, “You give them something to eat.”

In conclusion, having more to give to others implies that you should have more than enough, have likely been fed, full, and have a lot to give. You can’t give what you don’t have, according to the adage, so you must have the Word within you in order to give it to others, right? Study the Bible to demonstrate your approval, dear child of God. Amen. May this be the case for us.
