What Lessons Do We Learn from Jesus Feeding the 5000 in John 6?

Like in every book, in every chapter of John, there are lots of things we can learn from John 6. John 6 is about the feeding of the 5,000, but the part of the story I love is not only that Jesus tells the son that He's the bread of life, which that's huge, that He is what we're to feed on, but also what we see is this little boy who gives everything he has, and how Jesus multiplied what he had. I think that we need to bring all of our resources to the Lord, and to say to Him, "I want to give this to you." Not part of our resources, and I think that too often we say, "I'm only going to give this little amount to God and not the big amount to God."

This little boy had the five loaves and the two fish, but he gave it all to Jesus. If I were that little boy, I don't think I would have given my whole lunch. I don't think I would have even thought that God could use it. I think that many times as believers, we think what we have is not adequate for God. He could never use my little bitty gift. He could never use my little bitty comment to someone that could change a life. We forget that God can take our efforts, that He takes all of what we have and He magnifies them, and He produces miracles with things. Certainly, what He does is He multiplies the gift. We see that we want to give, and know that God will multiply it.
