How Can So Little Make a Difference?
John 6:1-21 gives us the story of the Feeding of the Five Thousand. A large crowd had gathered with Jesus and his disciples who were hungry for healing and teaching. At some point they became hungry for food. Andrew finds a little boy with five barley loaves and two fish. Right before the eyes of the crowd and the disciples, Jesus took the bread, gave thanks for it, and then distributed it to the 5,000 gathered folks. All were fed and there were even leftovers. A miracle happened in the sight of all. A little boy gave all that he had to help feed the hungry. What does the story tell us about how we can make a difference?
