Genesis 44:1-45:28;  Matthew 14:13-36;  Psalm 18:37-50;  Proverbs 4:11-13

“Now when it was evening, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a desolate place, and the day is now over;  send the crowds away to go into the villages and buy food for themselves.”  But Jesus said, “You give them something to eat.”  They said, “we have only five loaves here and two fish.”  And he said, “Bring them to me.”  Then he ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass, and taking the five loaves and two fish, he looked up to heaven and said a blessing.  Then he broke the loaves and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds.”  Matthew 14:15-19

What has God asked you to bring to the table?

You may say, “Oh, I’m not that good–that talented–that eloquent–that loving–that encouraging–that patient–that good of a teacher–that wise.”

That may be true.

But all He asks is that we simply bring what we DO have.  He will bless our offering.  He will make it ENOUGH.

Lord God, you showed your disciples that you can use “whatever” is offered up to you to be a blessing and service to those in need.  Give us willing hearts to offer up what we have to be used by you.  Bless our offerings, for Jesus’ sake, Amen.
