“Jesus didn’t need that boy,” writes Gutwein in Live to Give: Letting God Turn Your Talents into Miracles. “Jesus didn’t need his lunch. He could have fed everyone without even missing a beat in His teaching. Jesus could have turned rocks into bread if He wanted to – but instead, He chose to use that boy.
“The Bible doesn’t give us many details about this kid or why Jesus chose to use him, but I can’t help but wonder if He did it to show us what happens when we offer our gifts to Him.”
