The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleMatthew 14:18
He said, bring them hither to me.
] The loaves and the
fishes, signifying that they were sufficient; or that he would make
them so: this he said, to try their faith in him, their obedience to
him, and their liberality to others: and indeed, the best way to
have an increase of temporal supplies, is to bring what we have, and
put it into Christ's hands; whereby not only good is done to others,
but that with an overplus is returned to the giver.
