Loaves and fishes

deut16.17

One of my favorite stories from the Bible is about the little boy who handed over his loaves and fishes and Jesus fed thousands with the little lunch. First of all, I like how the boy didn’t hesitate–he simply gave Jesus what he had. And I love how Jesus didn’t look in the box and say, “What were you thinking? Look at all these people! This is completely inadequate. Take it away.” No, He took it, blessed it, and then expanded it. I think Jesus does that with all of our offerings. When we give as we are able, HE does more than we ever could.
