The miracle that our Lord Jesus Christ did was feeding a crowd numbering over five thousand people with five loaves and two fishes. They were all filled and could not eat anymore. The disciples collected all the remaining fragments. They might have gone to every person and collected or asked the people to come and return what they were not able to eat. Twelve baskets full were collected.
What do we learn from this? We should help those who are in want and supply for their needs. Our resources might be little but do it with faith. Let the Lord bless it when surrendered to Him. We must trust the Lord to meet the needs of our life. We must always be thankful for the provisions of God in our life.
The remaining fragments after feeding of the five thousand are showing the abundance of God’s blessing. We have to understand all blessings are from Him and we have to be wise stewards of it. Nothing should be lost or wasted. We let our blessings be lost when we ignore it and are not concerned about it. We learn our lesson from another parable of the younger son who wasted his substance. Luke 15:13. We should not spend what God has given us in sinful things. We should not lead a lavish lifestyle. We have to look around us and see those who are in need have compassion on them and use our blessings to help others. The fragments are not to be wasted. Have a concern for the suffering of others. How else can we show the love of Christ to others? Our wealth, our time and our strength must be used to bring glory to our Lord Jesus Christ. This kind of use will bring abundant blessings. Be faithful. AMEN DJ
