When a little becomes a lot

A young boy once called at a rich man’s home and offered to sell some pictures for ten cents each. ‘What are you going to do with the money?’ he was asked. ‘I’m raising a million dollars for earthquake relief,’ he answered. ‘A million dollars!’ the man laughed. ‘Do you expect to raise it all by yourself?’ ‘Oh no,” he replied, ‘my brother is helping me.’
Well, you’ve got to admire that boy’s spirit. But it wouldn’t be the first time that one small endeavour so captured the attention of others that great things resulted. Every worthwhile human endeavour started with one person who had a dream of something better. The Gospel story about Jesus multiplying a small boy’s lunch so that it fed a multitude is a picture of what happens when people with a dream start by simply giving what they have.
