John 6:30-35

The crowd boldly asks Jesus for signs. What else can he do for them? Clearly their enthusiasm about the multiplication has faded. They cite what Moses did for the people in the desert. Jesus responds by saying that God was responsible for that miracle, not Moses. He reminds them again that the bread of God is not meant to satisfy their physical hunger.

Lord, I can be pretty dense. How many times do you have to tell me? How many ways do you have to say it? Thank you for your patience and persistence.
