blind & stubborn against believing

Mark 8

v17

And when Jesus knew [it], he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet hardened?

Jesus had miraculously provided bread to thousand, on two different occasions, but when He spoke to his disciples using an analogy about yeast, they were worried that he meant they didn't have enough bread with them.

Jesus seemed to be expressing that by this point they should perceive and understand, that He has all power, and not to worry about food because He could just provide some if He wanted. He said, have ye your heart yet hardened?

We can be kept from understanding by being hard-hearted (stubborn). Let's believe Him instead of being so stubborn that we're blind.
