Mark 6:37-42 lets us in on a 2,000 year old conversation between Jesus and his disciples that still have meaning for us today. It went something like this…
But Jesus said, “You feed them.” “With what?” they asked.
“We’d have to work for months to earn enough money to buy food for all these people!”
“How much bread do you have?” he asked. “Go and find out.”
They came back and reported, “We have five loaves of bread and two fish.”
In the end, Jesus took the five loaves and two fish, looked toward heaven and blessed them. He kept giving the bread to the disciples so they could distribute to the people. He also divided the fish for everyone to share. They all ate as much as they wanted. A total of 5,000 men and their families were fed from those loaves- with leftovers!
Remember to bring what God has given you to any situation. Even if it appears to be just a measly drop in a supersized bucket, offer it to the Lord anyway. Let God bless it and He will multiply it for His glory and for the advancement of the kingdom. This humble act of giving on our part glorifies God and it is our contribution to our fellow man. A “few loaves and a few fish” are like storehouses of supplies for God. It is more than enough for a miracle.
