A LITTLE LUNCH GOES A LONG WAY

 

John 6:5-13

5 When Jesus then lifted up [his] eyes, and saw a great company

come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread,

that these may eat? 6 And this he said to prove him: for he

himself knew what he would do. 7 Philip answered him, Two hundred

pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of

them may take a little. 8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon

Peter's brother, saith unto him, 9 There is a lad here, which

hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they

among so many? 10 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. 11 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. 12 When they were filled, he said unto his

disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be

lost. 13 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.
