Scripture:   Matthew (NIV) 14:17   “We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish,” they answered.

18  “Bring them here to me,” he (Jesus) said. 

19  And he directed the people to sit down on the grass.  Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves.  Then he gave them to the disciples and the disciples gave them to the people.

20  They all ate and were satisfied and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over.

21  The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children

Observation:   The disciples took what was available and gave it to Jesus.  Then they took what He gave them and gave it to the people. 

Application:  Here is a good pattern for me and for any disciple of Jesus.  I take what I have available and give it to Jesus.  Then I take what He returns to me and give it to those around me.  NOTE:  The disciples only gave out what Jesus had given to them!  ALSO NOTE:  Jesus only multiplied what they had given Him!

Prayer:   Lord, at your direction, to place in your hands the little I have is the wisest thing I can do!  Amen
