Use what you have to help others.
This familiar story is found in John 6:1-13. People had been clamoring to see Jesus heal and perform miracles. Even has Jesus crossed over the Sea of Galilee, they followed him. When Jesus saw them, He didn’t ignore them or send them away. Instead, Jesus knew they were tired and hungry. He had compassion for them and decided to feed them. With no food in sight, a young boy offers his meal of bread and fish. Jesus takes what the boy has and feeds the multitude with leftovers!
Use what you have to help others. Kids might think they’re too young to make a difference in how they treat others. This story reminds us that what we already have has the potential to help others and make a massive difference to them. We just have to be aware of others’ needs and be willing to give up what we have to help them. We pray that kids start to discover the easy ways to use what they have to show compassion.
