These few days, my mind has been thinking about that small boy mentioned in John 6:9:
“Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?”
An innocent child with an unselfish heart, willingly shared the very limited he had with others… As a result, Jesus made this desire become a miracle that was beyond any asking and imagination, using the boy’s few small loaves and two small fish to feed more than ten thousand people to their satisfaction, and the leftover filled twelve baskets!
O Lord, I am very willing to have this boy’s innocence and faith!
During this fasting period, God made me specially sensitive to even more people in need, and also to take practical steps to help. But the very limited me could only offer up the little that I have like that little boy, and God shows me the unexpected result very fast as well.
What really touched me was, after my eldest brother read my diary on “forgiving the debts of others”, he immediately responded and said he is going to do the same! I am grateful, miracles are spreading…
“If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him?
Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.”
