John 6:5-9 NKJV
Then Jesus lifted up His eyes, and seeing a great multitude coming toward Him, He said to Philip, “Where shall we buy bread, that these may eat?” But this He said to test him, for He Himself knew what He would do. Philip answered Him, “Two hundred denarii worth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may have a little.” One of His disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, said to Him, “There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two small fish, but what are they among so many?”
Sometimes I think what I give or do is not of much value. I am not a great speaker nor will I ever write a bestselling Christian book or stand before coliseums full of unsaved people preaching the Gospel. There are too many hungry people both physically and spiritually, what difference can I make? I can easily think like Philip and Andrew; “What I have is insufficient.”
Then Jesus said, “Make the people sit down.” Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. And Jesus took the loaves, and when He had given thanks He distributed them to the disciples, and the disciples to those sitting down; and likewise of the fish, as much as they wanted. So when they were filled, He said to His disciples, “Gather up the fragments that remain, so that nothing is lost.” Therefore they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves which were left over by those who had eaten. (John 6:10-13 NKJV)
The beautiful thing is I do not have to be a famous evangelist or a man with deep pockets. What little I give He can multiply and do wondrous things. I do not have to solve the world’s problems, just be faithful to the Lord with what I have.
