Leftovers From Little

There are two things I find myself doing more often than I care to admit. These two things are embarrassing, and insulting to God.

Maybe you have the same problem as I do.

  1. I’m often controlled by what I don’t have
  2. What little I do have I often don’t place into the hands of God

The first one…

  • I’m often controlled by what I don’t have.

I often look around at other individuals, organizations and yes, even churches, and I say to myself, “If I only had the things they have…I could do just as good, if not even a little better.”

What about you? Have you ever done that in your own life? (bet ya have)

The next one is…

  • What little I do have I often don’t place into the hands of God

I look around and I see the very little I seem to have and I say to myself, “Giving this little bit to God wouldn’t make a difference at all. In fact, it would be kind of embracing.”

What about you today? Have you ever had these kinds of thoughts? (I bet you have.)

But here is what I want you to know today.

When you get your eyes off others, God can create a banquet out of what 
little you give Him and still have leftovers

Every one of us desires to be part of God’s Kingdom story.  We want to be used greatly by Him.  However, we often miss out- because we have allowed… What we don’t have to control us, and what little we do have to become an excuse for not doing anything. We believe that God can and does writes stories through the lives of others, but not through us.

I want you to know today…That’s a lie! There is plenty of room in God’s story to be part of the story.

He is still writing through His children daily when you get your eyes off others, and turn over your little bit to Him to be blessed, broken and returned back for you to steward to the world.

Read Through John 6:1-15 to see how God takes the little we give Him and 
creates leftovers. Also, to go deeper you can listen to Leftovers From Little
