15 As evening approached, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late. Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food.” 16 Jesus replied, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.” 17 “We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish,” they answered.
18 “Bring them here to me,” he said. 19 And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the people. 20 They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over.
21 The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.
I just want to say that every little thing makes a difference. It may not seem like a few coins will do a lot, but we serve a mighty God, and He can multiply any gift. The boy who gave the five loaves and two fish to Jesus didn't think that it may not be enough; he just gave what he had. He didn't think, "I'd better not give anything, because it won't feed everyone." No, he did what he could. He gave a couple fish and some bread, to feed 5,000 people. And God multiplied it and fed all five thousand people in the crowd, with some left over.
Again, I'm asking that you please start a coin jar for Matthew. It might not seem like the jar will do much to help. But every little thing matters. Right now, $10,787 is needed for him to come home. That seems like a lot, but God is bigger than that. He can use everything you can give. Also, if you send in a picture of you're jar to this blog, you have a chance to win a prize! But even if you don't win a prize, you're a winner in saving a precious little boy. Don't think that you won't make a difference, because you can.
