Jesus performed 7 types of miracles. He fed many people, cast out evil spirits, healed the blind, deaf sick and injured, turned water to wine, controlled the elements of nature, allowed Peter and his fishermen to catch a lot of fish, and lastly raised many from the dead including himself. This past weekend in Kids Life we focused on the miracle of Jesus feeding 5000 people with two fish and five loaves of bread. To illustrate how much Jesus provided we covered the floor in cotton balls to represent the fish and bread. When they were told to go the kids used their “baskets” to collect as much bread and fish as possible. When the bell rang they stopped collecting.
“Wow! Jesus did an amazing miracle! After He fed 5,000 people with only five loaves and two fish, there were still all these baskets of bread leftover!”
Our kids were able to visually see that even after all the people were fed there was still so much more left. Jesus always provides.
