Feeding the Katrina 5000

There is a nasty debate going on in this country about how ill prepared we were for Katrina at the highest levels and also at the lowest levels. Our dinner guest last night said, “I would have been the mother who sent her child with the loaves of bread and two fish that our Lord used at the feeding of the 5000.” The next day our guest noted, “the feeding of the 5000 illustrated just how ill prepared the crowd was for their hike into the wilderness to reach Jesus. How can I be so critical!”

There was no mother in the gospel accounts who supplied her child with the loaves of bread and two fishes, which Jesus used to feed the 5000. But there are thousands of Americans who like the prepared mother have given generously to aid the Katrina victims.
