Waste Not

John 6:12 And when they had eaten their fill, he told his disciples, “Gather up the leftover fragments, that nothing may be lost.”

Take a few minutes and read all of John chapter 6. Have you ever thought how Jesus was not one to waste anything? He had the disciples pick up all the food that was left. We are not told what He had them do with all that food but I imagine He had them give it to some of the families as they left for home. Jesus had everything at His disposal yet He did not waste. That is a lesson for us. We take more than we can eat or use and toss the rest. We have become a wasteful society. We are to be good stewards of all God entrusts to us. Let us remember this next time we take or toss.
