This is a story about Jesus from the Bible.
Jesus did many amazing things and he
was always showing us how God gives to
us.
This time… it all starts with a small boy!

The people had been sitting there all
day and now they were very hungry!
But… the shops were shut and it was
a long way to walk home for dinner!
What were they going to do?

A little boy gave his lunch of five
loaves of bread and two fish to
Jesus.
It wasn’t much but it was all he had
and he wanted to share.

Jesus took the food, thanked God for it
and asked his friends to give it out.
And the food kept going…
and going…
and going…
no one was left hungry!

Let’s pray…
Dear God,
Thank you that you have given us so much. You give
us life every day, family, friends and people who take
care of us. In the next few weeks, help us to remember
others and show us ways in which we can give back to
those who give so much to us. Remind us that this is
one way in which we can show we love you.
Amen
