84. but what are they among so many? (John 6:9)
It’s a fair question. The enormity of need dwarfs the available resources, such that Andrew’s locating of the boy with the lunch seems hardly useful. What’s the point? But Jesus can do more with nothing than we imagine. Andrew’s apparent lack of faith might be easy to criticize if it weren’t so common. Who could have guessed what Jesus had in mind that day? And how often does He have plans that seem beyond comprehension for us. The best point is to trust what Jesus says and be obedient in such unlikely moments. He may be about to do what you have never imagined possible.
