Jesus Helps Us to Multiply the Impact of Our Generosity

“When Jesus fed five thousand people with only five loaves of bread and two fish, he was showing us how God’s love can multiply the effects of our generosity.” (Nouwen, p. 46)

Jesus represented the greatest gift in the whole history of humankind. Jesus embodied the greatest act of sharing from a loving God. Through the feeding the 5000 households Jesus shows us how to our generosity can be multiplied. God’s Kingdom is a place of great abundance that both fundraisers and donors must realize.
