He took the seven loaves and the fish, and when he had given thanks, he broke them and gave them to the disciples, and they in turn to the people.
Matthew describes a scene where many people had gathered to hear Jesus teach. Thousands surrounded him and they were hungry. The disciples looked at the small amount of available food and knew it was not enough for the crowd. Yet Jesus took the loaves and fish in His hands, and gave thanks for what was before Him. He knew that with God, a little can be more than enough. God can take whatever we bring Him and use it in miraculous ways.
Gratitude is easy after God multiplies the loaves and fish--after the bill is paid, the job is offered, or the diagnosis is good. Let us instead be thankful for what we have and use it as God sees fit.
Thank you, Lord for being such a faithful provider. Help us remember that with You, the little that we have can become more than enough.
