Every time we draw near to Him, hang out with Him, we begin to "catch" a little bit of His great compassion for others. And every time we take our compassion to help others back to Jesus, He does a couple things: He acknowledges our desire to have their needs met but instead of sending them away to figure it out for themselves, He says "you feed them!" So, we muster up all we have (our time, our talents, our energies, our creativity, our resources...) and we bring it before Him saying, "here's what I have" (while maybe thinking "though it clearly isn't enough"). But with God its always more than enough. Jesus accepts our gifts, thanks God for them, blesses, breaks & hands them back to us to give out...AND EXCEEDS THE NEEDS OF THE MANY!
Grateful for the many opportunities God has placed before us this past year to serve Him with all that we are and all that we have! Aren't you? He's accomplishing more than we can ever imagine!!
Looking forward to a new year and the new God-directed opportunities it will bring.
HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL!!! :)
