The young lad told his mother the news. Jesus, the Miracle Worker, would preach by the Sea of Galilee that day. He wanted to see Jesus. His mother packed him a lunch. The boy didn’t realize that what he had in his hand would touch the lives of thousands that day and for centuries to come.
He arrived early and found a front-row seat. He never remembered his lunch until near evening. Then he heard the Master speaking to the disciples about a need for food. He offered Jesus all the food he had.
Jesus thanked him and asked the multitude to sit down. He “took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.” Matthew 14:19
That day, 5,000 men, plus women and children, ate their fill of warm bread and salted fish. Jesus told them to gather up the leftovers. Can’t you see the boy filling his bag with the miracle food and rushing home to share with his mother?
Not one of the four gospel writers tells us his name. But his actions are recorded for all eternity.
As we give to our local field I want to ask you, what do you have in your hand? God can take the offering you have in your hand and by His touch multiply your offering to bless the lives of thousands.
