When Jesus looked up and saw a great crowd coming toward him, he said to Philip, “Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat?”….Philip answered him, “Eight months wages would not buy enough for each one to have a bite!”…. Andrew spoke up….” Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?”….Jesus took the loaves gave thanks and distributed to those who were seated as much as they wanted…. —John 6:5-11
The needs of those around me often overwhelm me. There are so many beautiful things in this world but there is also so much pain. And I am often tired….feeling like all I have left are crumbs of bread, and bits of fish. And I am surprised by the fact that Jesus wants this little bit that I have, but He does. And I am continually amazed at how He takes the little bits and does wonderful miracles with them…..
Little bits of time….little bits of love….little bits of courage…little bits of money….little bits of talent….little bits of all I am…Jesus will take those little bits, thank God for them, and then use them to make miracles.
All I have to do is hand them over to Him…
