Ephesians 6:1-9
Luke 9:10-17

Ephesians 6:1-9
[1] Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.
[2] “Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise),
[3] “that it may be well with you and that you may live long on the earth.”
[4] Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
[5] Slaves, be obedient to those who are your earthly masters, with fear and trembling, in singleness of heart, as to Christ;
[6] not in the way of eye-service, as men-pleasers, but as servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart,
[7] rendering service with a good will as to the Lord and not to men,
[8] knowing that whatever good any one does, he will receive the same again from the Lord, whether he is a slave or free.
[9] Masters, do the same to them, and forbear threatening, knowing that he who is both their Master and yours is in heaven, and that there is no partiality with him.

Luke 9:10-17
[10] On their return the apostles told him what they had done. And he took them and withdrew apart to a city called Beth-sa’ida.
[11] When the crowds learned it, they followed him; and he welcomed them and spoke to them of the kingdom of God, and cured those who had need of healing.
[12] Now the day began to wear away; and the twelve came and said to him, “Send the crowd away, to go into the villages and country round about, to lodge and get provisions; for we are here in a lonely place.”
[13] But he said to them, “You give them something to eat.” They said, “We have no more than five loaves and two fish — unless we are to go and buy food for all these people.”
[14] For there were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples, “Make them sit down in companies, about fifty each.”
[15] And they did so, and made them all sit down.
[16] And taking the five loaves and the two fish he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd.
[17] And all ate and were satisfied. And they took up what was left over, twelve baskets of broken pieces.
