We can learn a lot about Philip by reading the book of John. Our Bible Reading is about the first time Philip met Jesus. Jesus said to Philip (verse 43), “Follow me.” Immediately Philip followed Jesus. Later Philip brought his friend, Nathaniel, to Jesus.
John 6:5-11 tells us about another time Philip was with Jesus. Jesus was teaching a large group of people, and it was time to eat. In verse 5, Jesus asked Philip, “Where can we buy enough bread for all these people to eat?” Philip did not know how they could feed so many people. Jesus did a miracle and fed more than 5000 people. Philip learned a great lesson about Jesus that day.
Sometimes we are like Philip. We worry about food or clothes or where we will live. Instead of worrying, we need to depend on God. He will take care of us.
Don’t worry today! Depend on God to help you with your needs and your problems. He loves you and wants to take care of you.
