5 Loaves and 2 Fish

Matthew 14:16-17
Jesus replied, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat. "We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish,” they answered.

@JohnPiper: When I feel empty and unable to give any more, few things encourage me more than the words, "Five loaves and two fish."

I am learning that God is not limited by what I do not have. I am so quick to think that people should go somewhere else to be fed, but God desires that we allow Him to us.

I'm reminded of the servant with just one talent, afraid to do anything with what God had given him. But he says that he knows the master to reap where he did not sow.

God use my 5 loaves and 2 fish. Thank you for blessing me with even that. I pray that I will not be afraid, or allow what I see as meager, to keep me from giving it away for You! Let all of me, my whole life bring you glory, and point others to You!
