A great crowd had gathered, and they had nothing to eat. So Jesus called his disciples to him and said to them, ‘I feel sorry for all these people; they have been with me for three days now and have nothing to eat. If I send them off home hungry they will collapse on the way; some have come a great distance.’ His disciples replied, ‘Where could anyone get bread to feed these people in a deserted place like this?’ He asked them, ‘How many loaves have you?’ ‘Seven’ they said. Then he instructed the crowd to sit down on the ground, and he took the seven loaves, and after giving thanks he broke them and handed them to his disciples to distribute; and they distributed them among the crowd. They had a few small fish as well, and over these he said a blessing and ordered them to be distributed also. They ate as much as they wanted, and they collected seven basketfuls of the scraps left over. Now there had been about four thousand people. He sent them away and immediately, getting into the boat with his disciples, went to the region of Dalmanutha.
In our time, the word "Faith" has come to be understood as "belief": giving assent to propositions; believing certain things to be true. In biblical times, however, the meaning of the word we translate as "faith" was much closer to our word "trust". Faith in God means trust in God. So we begin to understand that, in feeding the multitude, Jesus is giving us a lesson in trust. We are to trust in God, and God will come through with what we need. Rather than worrying and getting uptight, we can relax and be open to the Spirit. Jesus tells us many times, "Be not afraid".
