(KJV.) ST. JOHN 6:12
(12) When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.
In a summary, Jesus went up to the mountain, and sat with his disciples, lifted up his eyes, saw many people come unto him; he inquired if there was any food available for them to eat; ..among the crowd was a certain kid, who had five barley loaves and two small fishes; Jesus said, make the people sit down, then took the loaves and fishes from the kid, gave thanks, distributed to his disciples, and from the disciples to the people; everyone ate and was filled; remember, the food was borrowed food, from a certain kid, so he asked his disciples to gather up the fragments that remain; when it was gathered up together, they had twelve baskets with the leftovers from the five barley loaves; miraculously, Jesus multiplied five barley loaves, the two small fishes to feed the multitude; mercifully, the kid was kind enough to give his meal over to Jesus, that the multitude might eat and not faint; today, can you and I do the same for others? Maybe, maybe not; it is the heart issue! However, after the multitude had eaten the food and was filled, Jesus did not leave the fragments all over the field but ordered his disciples to gather them up into the baskets, much food was restored unto the giver; therefore, we are to care, give out of love to the needy, believe that whenever we give, we do not lose anything, but rather gain multiple blessings. cf. Luke 6:38.
Beloved, metaphorically, Jesus, preached the gospel of the kingdom to humanity while on earth, before ascension to heaven, he commanded his disciple to; "Go ye into the world and preach the gospel to every creature. cf. Mark 16:15"; today, you and I have been called to continue to preach the gospel where the disciples of Jesus left off, because there are still remnants among us, who need to hear about Jesus, before his second coming to earth; we are in the end times, the clock is ticking now, we have the assignment to fulfill; therefore, let us lay aside our differences, roll up sleeves, get into the field, and gather up the remnants of Jesus? Continue to Love one another! Peace and Love be unto you! Amen and Amen!
