Do you ever get caught in the trap of "It's to little" "I won't do it cause it is not enough" "Someone else is able to give more so I won't" "It doesn't look like enough"
I was reading the story of the 5 loaves and 2 fish the other day and it kinda just hit me.
So often we look at what we have as to little, and just keep it to ourselves. Because in our eyes the 5 loaves and 2 fish seems like nothing in a crowd of over 5 thousand people, so why even bother.
Isn't that amazing how sometimes what we see as so little, God has the most amazing miracle in store if we would just be a willing vessel and allow God to use what little we have.
I love how he says in verse 6
Jesus already knew what he was going to do.
It is so easy to brush it off, or to feel like we never have enough to give. God doesn't see the small amount as limiting, all he sees is your heart. If you are willing to trust in and obey God with what little you may have he has so much more then you could ever imagine in mind!
How often does God ask us to do something, whether it be to show someone some love, pay for a coffee, help your neighbor out, pray for someone and we brush it of cause it seems so little, it seems like nothing.
I know I often have a thought pop into my head and brush it off as being to little.
But maybe that little bit that God is asking you to give will turn into something so much bigger then you could ever imagine!
Not only was there enough to feed everybody, but there was leftovers.
Don't ever think that what you have to offer is to little. You never know how God will use that little to turn it into something bigger then you could ever imagine!!
Maybe he isn't calling you to feed the 5 thousand but give the 5 loaves & 2 Fish.
