John 6:5-14; Have the children read this story from a Bible. They could each read one or two verses.
One day when Jesus was teaching, a great crowd of people came to listen. Jesus wanted to feed them. Maybe He really wanted to teach them about being generous.
It may have been hard for the boy to give up his lunch. Sharing is something that does not always come natural to children. You have probably experienced having an adult tell you to “share” your toys. Your idea of sharing may be, you give your toy to someone else and then you don’t have it any more!
The boy in this story was willing to “give” his lunch. He trusted Jesus with it. Then he must have been as amazed as everyone else when Jesus “blessed” his gift and it multiplied so there was enough to feed everyone in the crowd. There was even lots left over. He now had a great story to tell and he had plenty to eat himself. He must have felt very good.
The Bible says if we are willing to give generously, we will be rewarded generously. Maybe you think that what you are giving away is something you really want or need. But God has promised to give us everything we need if we trust Him.
