There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many? And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would. When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost. Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.
Have you ever had a fish and loaves experience? I have multiple time.
A recent experience happened just last week. A friend brought a meal for my family to help out after my baby was born. She had asked about how many chicken roasters my family would need. I told her that I usually cook a 5-6 lb whole chicken for us. She was amazed as her family of 5 (with 3 small children) eat a 3 lb roaster. Well, she cooked two, 3 lb roasters for us and it fed everyone and we had leftovers.
I guess I had never thought about how little a 6 lb chicken seems to be able to feed a large family, but God has always made it enough for us.
I would love to hear your "fish and loaves" experiences! Share below in the comments!
