What is God asking of you? He is asking you to bring EVERYTHING YOU HAVE! As Jesus directed the people to sit down on the grass He took everything his disciples had: five loaves and two fish. He looked up to heaven, gave thanks, broke the loaves and gave them to the disciples who turned and gave them to the people.

Jesus clearly shows that He is willing to meet community needs through completely exhausting all of the personal resources of His own followers. Here He multiplies their loaves and fish. But why does He even ask for it? He doesn’t need some bread to make lots of bread; this isn’t Amish friendship bread which requires 1 cup of live yeast starter and will create an infinite number of sweet loaves. He can make all the bread he wants out of nothing. But He chooses to use what they bring to multiply it. While He certainly doesn’t need us nor does He need our meager contributions, His pattern is to spend us. He wants you to bring EVERYTHING YOU HAVE: time, talents, financial resources in order to multiply it to meet needs for His Glory!
