A Boy (and Jesus) Feed 5,000 People

In Matthew 14:14-20 there is the dramatic account of Jesus’s miracle to feed 5,000 people. [This event is also recorded in Mark 6:31-44, Luke 9:10-17, and John 6:1-14]

The people have been with Jesus all day; they are hungry and without food. Jesus asks how much food is available; the report is merely five loaves of bread and two fishes from a boy. [John 6:9]We don't have to give Jesus something huge or beyond our means, but we do need to give him what we have Click To Tweet

Surely out of more than 5,000 people, other people there also have some food, but they are keeping it to themselves (which seems wise and prudent). However, one boy is willing to share what he has. Because of that, his small gift is used to feed all those people.

We don’t have to give Jesus something huge or beyond our means, but we do need to give him what we have. When we do, Jesus can do great things with it, like feed 5,000 people.
