Feeding the Five Thousand
by Berni Dymet 

John 6:9 "There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish.  But what are they among so many people?"

For most of my life, I was the kind of guy who worked hard, earned lots of money and kept it all to myself.  But you know - I never felt as though there was quite enough.

I remember hearing about "Christians" who gave one tenth of their income to their church and thinking - what a bunch of loonies.  

But I have to confess, I've done a complete turnaround.  Why - what would cause this greedy man to start thinking about giving a whole bunch of it away?

There's a time when Jesus was speaking to thousands of people and they were hungry.  There was no food out in the field.  And this young boy offers up a few fish and loaves of bread.

And Jesus multiplies those - to feed the thousands.  Now - we can say sure that was then - but not now.

Hmm.  Perhaps.  But it seems to me that every time this little boy offers up his morsels - God does some amazing things with them.

I don't know.  I reckon it's a Jesus thing.
