Five Loaves

Today I fed six people who are helping us at Deaf Missions. I had plenty of food to use for the meal. We had a good meal, and there was some food left over.
In our Bible Reading today, we read about a time when Jesus fed a group of people, too. But there were not a few people — there were more than 5,000 people to feed! And Jesus had only five loaves of barley bread and two little fish.
Jesus thanked God for the bread and fish and started handing out the food. “Jesus gave the people as much as they wanted” (verse 11b). When the people were finished eating, there were twelve large baskets of leftovers.
Jesus performed a miracle! This miracle shows us how powerful Jesus is. And this miracle also shows us that Jesus is truly God’s Son. Many people in the world today reject Jesus or say that He was just a good man. But the Bible clearly shows us that Jesus is the Son of God.
