Scripture - Mark 6
Observation - We never found out what the boy’s name was in verse 30, but what we do know is he had two fish and five loaves of bread. He was in a crowd of 5,000 listening to Jesus speak. He wasn’t focused on the size of the gift but rather his eyes were fixed on Jesus. His gifts are meager and ordinary, but generous; they speak volumes of how big his heart was. He gave a little in most peoples perspectives, but Jesus gives back more than the boy probably could have ever expected..
Application - Think about what you can offer to God. Is it meager and ordinary? It’s ok, if that’s it. God uses the simple things we offer, how awesome! Hand it over to God and expect a miracle!
Prayer- Father, help me to use the gifts and talents that you have placed in my life. Help me to go beyond myself and see how I can help your people. Everyday put someone in my path that needs to hear the name of Jesus. Open my eyes to let me see people through your eyes. In your name I pray, Amen.
