Bible story: ‘Jesus feeds the five thousand’

"Peter said “It's getting late, the people are hungry – send them back to the villages to buy food.”  Jesus said “You get them some food!”.  “I haven't enough money to feed all these people!”....

“See if anyone has any food we could share...”.

There was one little boy who had a packed lunch and he gave it to Jesus.  In his packed lunch there were five small loaves (a bit like pitta bread) and two fish (probably dried fish, little ones like sardines, from the lake). “Well..” thought Jesus' disciples (that's what his friends were called) “there's no way that little bit of food is going to go round all this lot!  NO WAY!”Would you have been prepared to share your lunch with all those people?"


God's providence, I am the bread of life, God's care for us
