“BRING YOUR LITTLE”
READ: 1 Kings 17:1-16
GOT to GIVE, GIVE to GET, GET to GIVE
3 APPROACHES TO GIVING...
- Got To Give
- Give to Get
- Get To Give
It’s not about something God wants from you, but something God wants FOR you!
Winston Churchill - “We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give”
Proverbs 3:9-10 (NIV)
2 Cor.9:7-8 (NIV)
LEADING THROUGH LOSING
Back to 1 Kings 17. Elijahs water supply gets less and less each day.
QUESTION: Has that ever happened in your life? Have you ever asked God, when will I stop losing? When are you going to provide?
God led Elijah to his next assignment through losing. Sometimes God will lead you through what you lose. Taking away things that point us to our purpose!
LITTLE IN YOUR HANDS, LARGE IN HIS HANDS
READ: Mathew 14:15-21
Jesus is the one who provides; but His followers are to be active in bringing the provisions to those in need.
The miracle took place in His hands, not in theirs; for whatever we give to Him, He can bless and multiply.
Often we look at the enormity & magnitude of the problem or the need & we think: "because I can't do everything, I’ll do nothing!” What can my little do?
Jesus never asks one person to do everything, but He does ask all of us to do something!
ILLUSTRATION (Share story)
Just like the woman in 1 Kings 17 and the small boy in Mathew 14, Bring Him your little, your "not enough" and He will turn it to "MORE THAN ENOUGH”
Believe in miracles but trust in Jesus!
