Hand to Face

Jesus fed thousands of people and then left the area overnight to minister elsewhere. When the people realized that He had moved on they followed Him. When they arrived and started to question His disappearance, He told them that they were not looking for actions of God, but were simply following Him because He had filled their stomachs.

It's easy to fall into this trap even today. The depth of our relationship with God becomes about what He can do for us instead of seeking intimacy with Him. It's the same as looking for the hand that has a gift for us and never looking up to see who it is from. Our relationship with Christ becomes transformed (as do all others in our life) when we focus on His face and seek out His character instead of just looking for a heavenly handout.
