Simple Things

“…Here am I. Send me!” – Isaiah 6:8

Do you think that someday you will be able to do something great for God? Maybe you will write a huge check to your favorite charity or possibly fund a program to feed the hungry. Perhaps you might help a special ministry at your church.

Many people waste so much time waiting until they can do something big that they miss opportunities for service right now. This attitude is the opposite of the one that the Bible teaches. Jesus took simple things from ordinary folks and turned them into resources beyond imagination.

One day a little boy overheard the disciples of Jesus trying to figure out how they were going to feed 5,000 families. The boy offered his lunch of five loaves and two fish to help. When Jesus received it, He multiplied it into enough food to feed 5,000 families–with leftovers.

This same Jesus can turn the simple things you bring to Him, those deeds of service day by day, and multiply them into great blessings for you, as well as for others. As small as it may seem, He is looking for people who will give Him all they have, and trust Him to do the rest.
