The eyes of all look hopefully to you,
and you give them their food in due season. --Psalm 145:15
FOR REFLECTION:“There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish; but what good are these for so many?”JOHN 6:9
The miracle of the Loaves and Fishes carries two important messages. First, no matter how little we have, we always have enough to share. Second, Christ can take our humble gifts and do great things with them if we are just willing to let Him. Nothing is impossible with God. All of our gifts, big or small, were given to us for a reason. No gift is too small or insignificant!
