1 After this, Jesus crossed over to the far side of the Sea of Galilee, also known as the Sea of Tiberias.
2 A huge crowd kept following him wherever he went,
because they saw his miraculous signs as he healed the sick.
3 Then Jesus climbed a hill and sat down with his disciples around him.
4 (It was nearly time for the Jewish Passover celebration.)
5 Jesus soon saw a huge crowd of people coming to look for him.
Turning to Philip, he asked,
"Where can we buy bread to feed all these people?"
6 He was testing Philip, for he already knew what he was going to do.
7 Philip replied, "Even if we worked for months, we wouldn't have enough money* to feed them!"
8 Then Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, spoke up.
9 "There's a young boy here with five barley loaves and two fish.
But what good is that with this huge crowd?"
10 "Tell everyone to sit down," Jesus said.
So they all sat down on the grassy slopes.
(The men alone numbered about 5,000.)
11 Then Jesus took the loaves,
gave thanks to God,
and distributed them to the people.
Afterward he did the same with the fish.
And they all ate as much as they wanted.
12 After everyone was full, Jesus told his disciples,
"Now gather the leftovers, so that nothing is wasted."
13 So they picked up the pieces and filled twelve baskets with scraps left by the people who had eaten from the five barley loaves.
Andrew said, “But what good is that with this huge a crowd?”
I guess Jesus showed how He could take just a little bit of something & do something miraculous with it.
Isn't that how we are?
We ask how can God use little old me?
Or how can God use whoever or whatever.
But I think God love & delights to take seemingly insignificant things & people & do miracles with them.
This about that the next time we think God can't us us or something for His purpose & glory.
