GIVE, EVEN IF IT’S THE ONLY THING YOU HAVE LEFT…
GIVE, EVEN IF IT'S THE ONLY THING YOU HAVE LEFT…
How come you still do not understand this principle, even after I've shown you twice? That was the question that Jesus asked His disciples when they worried that all they had in their boat was a loaf of bread.
They thought one loaf would not be sufficient for 12 disciples; meanwhile, earlier in Mark chapters 7 and 8, Jesus had taught them how to trade 5 loaves to get 12 baskets of bread, and how to trade 7 loaves to get 7 baskets of bread.
You do not escape lack by keeping what you have left, but by giving out what you have left. That child was brave enough to give out the five loaves and two fishes that he had left; and if we think about it, he would definitely be the sole owner of the twelve baskets that remained after over 5000 were fed.
This is clear wisdom from God; if what you have left will not be sufficient for what needs to be done, then give from it. Bishop David Abioye once said that "what you need to have is in what you have to give".
If what you have is not what you really need, then give it out to someone who really needs it, so that you can receive what you really need. Don't save when what you need to do is sow.
Let me conclude with this; there is always a 12 baskets return for every 5 loaves you give out to meet the needs of others. So, even if all I have are 5 loaves, I'd give them out, so I can secure the 12 baskets. May God give us understanding!
God bless you, I love you, and don't forget to share!
