John 6:8 “One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, saith unto him,”

John 6:9 “There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?”

Andrew brought the boy that has five loaves and two fishes but while presenting the boy, he added a very interesting clause. He said, “…but what are they among so many?”

In order words, what the boy has was useless compared to the magnitude of the problem to be solved. Andrew used some interesting adjectives in his statement.

The first thing that caught my attention was the fact that he referred to the owner of the lunch that was brought forward as a small boy. The young man or lad might be naïve but he was willing to drop his lunch and share with the crowd. He was not coerced into dropping it, he did it without complaining.

I don’t want to assume, but I have a feeling that if that “tiny meal” was in the hand of an adult, he’ll probably hide it or refuse blatantly to bring it forward.

Friend, God intentionally kept it in the hand of a small boy because He always start things from little. There is a supernatural power locked up in little things; it is the reproductive force that initiates harvest or results.

When you look carefully at Andrew’s statement, you’ll discover he had no idea of the power of little or small things. He first described the fishes as “small”, before he went ahead and added, “…but what are they among so many?”

Andrew was a man that is ignorant of the fact that great things starts small. Every great thing we see was once little.

Genesis 1:12 “And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.”

Every tree comes in form of a seed. A seed in the hand of a great and visionary man is not just a seed, neither is it a tree, it is actually a forest! Greatness is packaged in capsules!
