Why do you take so little

You hear Jesus saying throughout the gospels "Oh you of little faith", "why did you doubt"  Well, recently I heard a serman refer to it as Jesus saying, "why do you take so little".  God's supply is inexhaustible.  There was a scripture brought to my attention below, a situation with Jesus and disciples:
Matthew 16
5 Now when His disciples had come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread. 6 Then Jesus said to them, “Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the Sadducees.”

7 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, “It is because we have taken no bread.”

8 But Jesus, being aware of it, said to them, “O you of little faith, why do you reason among yourselves because you have brought no bread?[c] 9 Do you not yet understand, or remember the five loaves of the five thousand and how many baskets you took up? 10 Nor the seven loaves of the four thousand and how many large baskets you took up? 

We need to remember the miracles that Jesus did in the bible we need to remember that people ate as much as they wanted when Jesus provided:

John 6:11

11 And Jesus took the loaves, and when He had given thanks He distributed them to the disciples, and the disciples[a] to those sitting down; and likewise of the fish, as much as they wanted. 

Why do we act like Jesus only wants to give us just enough, "no, He gives us in excess, he gives us until we are full.  So take and eat until the full.  

Jesus never says "why do you take so much"  no he says "why do you take so little"  It is an insult to God, if you will, to behave as if he the whole earth is not His and the fullness thereof.  Everything belongs to Him, trust me.  It may not always appear as if everything belongs to Him, but it does.  Stop acting like your Father is not the richest person on the face of the earth.
