Of all the miracles in the Bible, one of the greatest is the feeding of the 5000. Found in all four gospels, only John 6:1-13 records that it was a “little boy or a young lad” who had the lunch of 5 loaves & 2 fish Jesus fed the crowd. Feeding that many with such a small amount, the disciples collected 12 basketfuls of leftovers. Wow!
I thought to myself, who prepared this young boy for his day out? Somewhere, it was probably a mom that packed a lunch for her son before he left home that morning. She was simply taking care of her boy. She couldn’t have known that Jesus would turn the silent work of her hands, the gifts from her kitchen, & her faithful love for her son, into one of Jesus's greatest miracles.
That is my favorite part. Don't miss it moms & dads, especially you who are feeling tired & unnoticed. You never know what God is up to with the little somethings you have to give.
For all of us, when you are faithful with the smallest of things that you have been entrusted, God can take that & do extraordinary things.
Whatever role you’ve been entrusted with, “DO all that you do as unto the Lord & not unto man” (Colossians 3:23).
See what God can do through you!
