Bring them here to me.

“Jesus replied, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.” “We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish,” they answered. “Bring them here to me,” he said.”

Matthew 14:16-18 

Jesus was keenly aware of how little food His disciples had when He asked them to feed to 5000.

Just like how keenly aware He is of how limited our resources are in comparison to the various tasks that lie ahead of each of us this week.

But still He gave the instruction, just to see how the disciples would react.  He wanted to see if they would complain or if they would trust their limited resources to Him.  In other words trust Him and not their resources.

As it turned out, they did both…they complained a little, but they still entrusted all they had…five loaves of bread and two fish…to Him.

As we start this week, God knows out limitations on time, money, talent, space, health, strength and all the other resources we believe we need to have a successful week.  And He is saying to us, “Bring them here to me.”

What are we going to do?

Prayer

Dear God, I know I constantly complain about not having enough of what I need to do what I want to do.  Give me the grace to stop complaining and grant me the faith to trust all I have to You, knowing that in Your hands my resources can do abundantly more than I could do with them my own. Amen.
