Bible Text:

Luke 9:10-17 NLT (The Feeding Of The Five Thousand-Plus)
10 When the apostles returned, they told Jesus everything they had done. Then He slipped quietly away with them toward the town of Bethsaida.
11 But the crowds found out where He was going, and they followed Him. He welcomed them and taught them about the Kingdom of God, and He healed those who were sick.
12 Late in the afternoon the twelve disciples came to Him and said, “Send the crowds away to the nearby villages and farms, so they can find food and lodging for the night. There is nothing to eat here in this remote place.”
13 But Jesus said, “You feed them.” “But we have only five loaves of bread and two fish,” they answered. “Or are you expecting us to go and buy enough food for this whole crowd?”
14 For there were about 5,000 men there. Jesus replied, “Tell them to sit down in groups of about fifty each.”
15 So the people all sat down.
16 Jesus took the five loaves and two fish, looked up toward heaven, and blessed them.
Then, breaking the loaves into pieces, He kept giving the bread and fish to the disciples so they could distribute it to the people.
17 They all ate as much as they wanted, and afterward, the disciples picked up twelve baskets of leftovers!

Matthew 26:26-29 NLT (The Last Supper.)
26 As they were eating, Jesus took some bread and blessed it. Then he broke it in pieces and gave it to the disciples, saying, “Take this and eat it, for this is my body.”
27 And he took a cup of wine and gave thanks to God for it. He gave it to them and said, “Each of you drink from it,
28 for this is my blood, which confirms the covenant between God and his people. It is poured out as a sacrifice to forgive the sins of many.
29 Mark my words—I will not drink wine again until the day I drink it new with you in my Father’s Kingdom.”

Luke 24:28-32 NLT (The two on the Emmaus Road, who meet the risen Savior.)
28 By this time they were nearing Emmaus and the end of their journey. Jesus acted as if He were going on,
29 but they begged Him, “Stay the night with us, since it is getting late.” So He went home with them. 30 As they sat down to eat, He took the bread and blessed it. Then He broke it and gave it to them.
31 Suddenly, their eyes were opened, and they recognized Him. And at that moment He disappeared!
32 They said to each other, “Didn’t our hearts burn within us as He talked with us on the road and explained the Scriptures to us?”

The habit of Jesus was to, thank The Father in heaven for His gifts!

Psalm 68:19 KJV
Blessed be The Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God Of Our Salvation. Selah.

And The Father in heaven, blessed and multiplied it.

“Pastor, we always give thanks, before we eat!”
Good, because many so-called Christian people do not!
When out in public at the restaurant, or the fast food center, do you bow your head in prayer to The Father, in your own personal thanksgiving for His bountiful gifts?”
(Christian people, rebuke the deceiver, and come out of the closet!)
How about it Christian?

Some are glad to stand up for all to see, and shout, “yes we do!”
OK, but do you give thanks after you have eaten??

Deuteronomy 8:10 KJV
When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless The Lord thy God for the good land which He hath given thee.


One of the dearest memories I have, was some 40 years ago, walking into a restaurant, looking for a table, and all of a sudden, there was a Choral-symphony of praise.

Eight nuns had just finished their meal, bowed their heads, held hands and sang their benediction of thanksgiving to their Heavenly Father.

How wonderful, it was, a sight and sound, everyone in that restaurant, would "never," forget!

There is so much we may learn from one another, if we through a heart of love, but look and listen!

Have a desire to live like Jesus? Then get into the habit of giving thanks for everything.

I Timothy 4:4,5 KJV
4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
5 For it is sanctified by The Word Of God and prayer.

I Thessalonians 5:18 KJV
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
