When one thinks of the men and women that God has used over the millennia; if one was to look after the outward appearance with the eyes of human wisdom, who would have picked them? Yet, the great and glorious reality is that God chooses the foolish things of the world to confound the wise and the weak things to confound the mighty. Is it not true that “…the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner” (1 Pet. 2:7)?
In this sermon, we look at the miracle of the feeding of the five thousand and as we do, we come to understand that God does not need our natural gifts and talents in order to work a work in our day. God simply asks that we give to him the little that we have, the five loaves and two fishes, that He might work a miracle to the blessing of many and to the glory of His mighty name!
