Offer what you have – 3 November 2016


When we live a life of giving, not only are we blessing others, but we are perpetuating blessing in our own lives. Scripture says that when we give, we increase more. Sometimes we talk ourselves out of giving. We think we don’t have enough or if we don’t have exactly what someone asks for, we think we can’t offer anything. The truth is, you always have something to give, and God will always make sure you have what you need when you place what you have in His hands.
I think about the little boy in scripture who left home with nothing but his sack lunch and headed out to hear Jesus. When it came time to feed the crowd, he didn’t have enough in the natural to feed anybody but himself! He gave what he had to Jesus, and Jesus took the little that he offered and made it great. That little boy’s lunch was multiplied in the hands of God so that it fed over 5 000 people that day.
Don’t ever think you don’t have something to give. When you give what you have, God will bless it and multiply it. He’ll use you in ways beyond your wildest imagination! Let’s share our lunches, let’s share our words of faith and encouragement, and lend a helping hand. I believe God will do miracles in your life at every turn when you offer what you have.
“One person gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty.” (Proverbs 11:24, NIV)
