“Never worry about numbers. Help one person at a time and always start with the person nearest you.” – Mother Teresa

Five Loaves and Two Fishes

Five loaves and two fishes
These are all I have
And I didn’t think they’d matter much
When there are thousands to be fed.

Five loaves and two fishes
And I was ashamed to ask
If somehow they could help
To feed those hungry men

But You took them in Your hands
And you blessed them
And offered them
To heaven.

And everyone ate ’til everyone’s full
And everyone believed
That you loved them
Cause you fed them.

And all these out of my small gift
The ones I thought didn’t matter
With five loaves and two fishes
You satisfied the hunger of men.

“There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish, but what are these amongst so many?”
Jesus took the loaves; and having given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to those who were sitting down; likewise also of the fish as much as they desired. When they were filled, he said to his disciples, “Gather up the broken pieces which are left over, that nothing be lost.” So they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with broken pieces from the five barley loaves, which were left over by those who had eaten. – John 6, WEBBE
