STEWARDSHIP REFLECTIONS

“There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish; but what good are these for so many?” – John 6:9

The miracle of the Loaves and Fishes is the only miracle which is recorded six times in the Gospel. It carries two important messages. First, no matter how little we have, we always have enough to share. Second, Christ can take our humble gifts and do great things with them if we are just willing to let Him. No gift is too small or insignificant!
