Bring It to Him

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. “Bring them here to me,” he said.

(Matthew 14:16-18 NIV)

I once caught up with a friend who was preparing for a difficult test. She shared how while anxiously studying for the test, God spoke to her through the story of Jesus feeding the five thousand. Just as Jesus was able to bless the five loaves of bread and two fish to feed the five thousand, God was asking her to trust Him with the little knowledge that she possessed. Let’s take a leaf from her story. God can use the simple things that we have to offer and turn them into something big for His glory. After having fed the five thousand, we’re told, “They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over” (Matthew 16:20). There’s always plenty when we bring Him what’s little. So bring Him the little that you have and let Him bless it into something more.

With God a little means a lot.
