BIBLE READING: Matthew 14
God can bring great glory to Himself, through the use of things we might consider ordinary. In Exodus, He uses an ordinary staff in the hand of Moses to deliver the plagues on Egypt and to part the Red Sea, bringing deliverance to His people. In Judges, He used trumpets, pitchers, and torches in the hands of three hundred Israelites to defeat a horde of Midianites.
In our text for today, Jesus used a young man's lunch to feed a great multitude. What do we possess today, that might be considered ordinary that can be used for His glory? Are we allowing Christ to use these things to bring honor to His name? David Stewart, Truth for Today Commentary
