2019 Lent Day 21: Mark 8: 1-13

Mark 8:1-13

I can’t get no…

In today’s reading, we see the feeding of the four thousand. Similar to the previous miracle of this sort, Jesus is reluctant to send people away, and this time he gives us a more explicit reason. The people (4000+) are fed and satisfied as a result of Jesus’ miracle.

Contrast that to the Pharisees. After all of the miracles and the teaching of Jesus, they demand a sign. They are completely unsatisfied. Perhaps the problem with dissatisfaction has nothing to do with Jesus and more to do with them. Perhaps we find ourselves in the same role.
