Bible Studies By George Nava / last year Share Tweet Pin Share Do Da Math John 6:9 There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many? that is not enough for so many people.” John 6:11 Jesus took the loaves of bread and gave thanks for them. Then he gave them to the people who were waiting to eat. He did the same with the fish. He gave them as much as they wanted. John 6:12 When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost. Joh 6:35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. Joh 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. REFLECTIONS: Now you do da math. How in heaven’s name does five loaves of bread and two fishes feed five thousand people? Because a little in Gods hands can be MUCH more than we’ll ever need. Perhaps we should realize though God can and does meet our present physical and fleshy needs nothing in this world satisfies like his indwelt spirit presence! Ever thought or wondered about how we at times refuse to give or help because we feel we have so little to offer or give. And thus there is no multiplication of blessing in our lives, on the other hand there are those who have much to give. Yet give so little and likewise they too have no multiplication of blessing in their lives. ‘God loves a cheerful giver” A new perspective on the needs around us will add a new and fresh vibrancy to our ABILITY, VISION and PURPOSE for giving.
