What is your "5 loaves & 2 fishes"?

What is your "5 loaves & 2 fishes"?

The Miracle of 2 fishes and 5 loaves of bread.

One bright day Jesus took his apostles into the desert to teach them privately...

However, as they went the people heard and started to follow them.

The sick, the weary of heart, and the curious followed into the desert hoping for miracles or just simply to understand;

Jesus welcomed all of them. He told them about the kingdom of God and healed them of their sicknesses… Many hearts were changed that day!

As the sun began to set in the west, his apostles began to worry. “Lord shouldn’t we send the people away…so they can find food and a place to sleep?”

Jesus looked at them and said, “Give them food and let them eat.”

“But Lord, we don't have anything to give...

There is only a boy who has only five loaves and two fishes, should we go into the town and buy more food?

There are five thousand men here, not including the women and children,” they answered.

“No, just go and make them sit down in groups of fifties.” Jesus said with a sparkle in his eye.

So that’s just what the apostles did. They wondered what Jesus was planning on doing.

When everyone was quiet and settled down in their groups Jesus looked towards heaven, all the people grew silent.

Jesus took the five loaves and the two fishes praying, He blessed the food and asked God to do a miracle.

Jesus began to break the food into pieces and gave it to His apostles to give it to the people.

Everyone was sitting in wonder as they watched the miracle enfold before their eyes.

They sat and ate the meal in awe and felt blessed. It was a miracle!

When all the people were full, and everyone had eaten some, the apostles collected the leftovers and there were twelve baskets of food left!

Jesus fed the multitude of more than 5,000 people that day!!!
