After Jesus finished teaching He noticed that the multitude was tired and hungry. Rather than send them away He told His disciples to give them something to eat. The disciples said they didn’t have enough resources to feed everyone, so Jesus took what a young boy already had and used it, while teaching the young boy a lesson about the power of sharing. Jesus didn’t ask who had jobs, who needed it, who was wasteful…He fed everyone. This was a very liberal act. I’m not saying it’s an over arching example of what the government should do in all cases, but t’s definitely an example of what our churches should do. It is an example of what would be defined of social liberalism.


After everyone had eaten, Jesus made a point to make the most of all the resources they had left. He told His disciples to pick up the fragments so that none would be wasted. Not to say that liberals are wasteful, but conservatives define themselves as to being fiscally conservative.
Most people today act as though you have to be either or…

If Jesus can be balanced can’t we?



God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
