They considered not the miracle

5bread2fishMark 6:52 For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened.

I have a hard time understanding how men who walked with Jesus could have seen the miracle of the feeding of the 5,000, and have not considered (taken to heart, comprehended, or reflected upon) it. I mean, even two thousand years later when I read the accounts of this miracle, it amazes me. But before I point fingers at the disciples, I must take an honest assessment of my own heart.

I wonder how many times the Lord is working in my heart and my life, and the Spirit is speaking and working in and around me, to bring me to where He wants me to be. And yet, how many times am I rather caught up in the “work” I’m doing that I fail to “consider Christ?” Might I take an honest evaluation of my heart, and “consider” what the Lord is trying to do and say in and through me today, that I might be what He wants me to be.
