If Jesus wanted to feed 5,000 today

Some of my friends serve churches where if Jesus wanted to feed the five thousand today I imagine part of what He might hear would include:

We don’t have the resources – just a couple of fish and a few loaves of bread (ok He actually did hear that one).

We don’t have a permit for food distribution.

I thought we were in the Sermon on the Mount business not the fish and bread business.

There aren't enough volunteers to distribute the food.

Some people don’t like fish.

Who is going to clean up the mess?

Wouldn’t it be easier to just send people home to get something to eat (ok He actually heard that one too).

I am so grateful to be serving a church that believes with Jesus we can still do miracles.
