THE POWER OF HIS MERCY
– Matt. 14:14-21
• When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he
had compassion on them and healed their
sick. As evening approached, the disciples
came to him and said, "This is a remote place,
and it's already getting late. Send the crowds
away, so they can go to the villages and buy
themselves some food." Jesus replied, "They
do not need to go away. You give them
something to eat."

• 17
"We have here only five loaves of bread and two
fish," they answered.
• 18 "Bring them here to me," he said. 19 And he
directed the people to sit down on the grass.
Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking
up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves.
Then he gave them to the disciples, and the
disciples gave them to the people. 20 They all ate
and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up
twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left
over. 21 The number of those who ate was about
five thousand men, besides women and children.
