You all probably have read the story about 5000 hungry people that Jesus fed. And in the story there is this little boy, who had five loaves and two fish. It wasn’t much- not nearly enough- but it was all he had. Jesus friends laughed when they saw his little lunch. But Jesus knew it didn’t matter how much the little boy had. God would make it enough, more than enough. It’s what God had been doing from the beginning. Taking the nothing and making it everything. Taking the darkness and making it light.
I’ve seen this little boy’s heart in people here this week. They might have felt that they don’t have much to offer, but their hearts have been willing to give their all. They may not see the impact that their time of turning peaches has on the world, where the need is so overwhelming. But Jesus smiles, winks his eye and whispers “Watch!” and He makes miracle out of it – He makes it more than enough. And we hear stories how lives have been changed, because they chose to come and give their all.
Attitude is everything, so pick a good one, says sign in our mission builder lounge. I would like to thank you for choosing a good one this week, and giving your all, it’s been such an honor to work alongside with all of you.
Can’t wait to see how God will multiply the love that was given here this week.
