The feeding of the 5,000 is recorded in chapter 6. There are many lessons we can learn from this portion of Scripture. We see in it what can be done with one life totally yielded to the Master. A small boy had five loaves and two fishes. But, more than that, he had a willing heart to give what he had to the Master. This is a familiar portion of Scripture. Verse 42 says, "And they did all eat, and were filled." Also, twelve baskets full of fragments were left over. What a lesson for us today! If we but totally yield all we have to the Master, He can multiply it. He can do over and above our expectations with what we may believe to be a limited talent. Dwight L. Moody once heard Henry Varley say that it remains to be seen what can be done through one man who is totally yielded to God. I trust that if you are not completely yielded to Him, that this might be the time when you will say, "Lord, take my all and magnify it for your honor and glory." When we can, from our hearts, pray that prayer, we begin learning what abundant living is all about.

MEMORY VERSE FOR TODAY: Man now can be: Righteous.

Romans 5:19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
