They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. (Matthew 14:20)
My husband started this tradition years ago. He personally picked and wrapped the gift. The tag read: for the one who didn’t get enough. You’d think no one would claim such a gift. Who’d have the nerve to admit she didn’t receive enough? But inevitably, one of our daughters would grab the extra present. Ah, but my husband was smart. He always bought something to be shared with the entire family like a box of candy or a game.
Sharing a box of candy or a game with a small family isn’t very difficult. But sharing a small lunch with 5000 hungry men plus women and children is quite another story.
Tomorrow, we’ll take a look at the Gift of Trust. Prepare by reading and meditating on John 6:16-24
See you in a twinkling,
