How Much Is Enough?

It is thought to be the best known story of the Bible. Over 5,000 people have gathered to see Jesus, and to seek out his healing, coming from many towns. It's getting late, and the ever-practical disciples express concern that it might be time to send them off so they can get something to eat. But Jesus says no. “There is no need to dismiss them. You give them supper.”

Say what? All they had was 5 little loaves and a couple of fishes, given by a little boy. How can they possibly feed so many? And yet, they did - and with plenty of leftovers.

How could this happen? And what does it mean for us in our real, day-to-day lives?
