Give All That You Have
Philip answered [Jesus], “Eight months’ wages would not buy enough bread for each one to have a bite!” (John 6:7, NIV)
Almost as soon as Philip came to the conclusion that it was humanly impossible to feed the crowd gathered on the hillside, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, spoke up, "Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?" (John 6:8–9, NIV). While Andrew seemed to agree with Philip about the impossibility of feeding so many, his approach to the need was more positive. Without even realizing it, his faith had found the key to the storehouse of God’s ample supply. When he offered Jesus a few loaves and fish, he was offering Jesus everything he had!
What do you have? Do you have a little bit of time?
...a little bit of love?
...a little bit of money?
...a little bit of faith?
Don’t concentrate on what you lack, concentrate on what you have. Then give all of it to Jesus for His use.
