More Than Enough

When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick.
As evening approached, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it's already getting late. Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food.” 
Matthew 14:14-15 NIV
 Send the crowds away...

How many times do we respond the same way?  We recognize the need, yet send people away when we have the ability to help them.  Like the disciples, we say, "I only have....", and make excuses.  But look what Jesus did with the little the disciples had to offer.  He took their five loaves and two fish and fed over 5,000 people. 

What do you have to offer today? 

Many blessings,

  1. Hi Lisa - sometimes we don't see what we have to offer and we think in terms of our ability. God can do much through us
    God bless

  2. I have felt that way sometimes with my kids. I tell them "Not now" or "We will later." But, why not now. Nothing is as important to me, other than Christ, as my family is.

  3. Hi Lisa, I agree with Tracy that at times I just fail to see that I have something to offer to others. Thanks for the reminder to willingly surrender the little I do have for the Master use.

  4. Lisa, on my way into work this morning I was thinking about the concept of God being more than enough for me. Thank you for this beautiful to share that "enough" with others!

  5. Hi Lisa~ I agree as well with Tracy. And there are those times I can help and yet feel as though I can't take another step. Thanks for the great reminder!!


  6. I have nothing to offer apart from Christ!:) But thankful he chooses to invite a wrech like me into his divine activity!
