Give Me what You've Got

Toward evening the disciples approached him [Jesus]. "We're out in the country and it's getting late. Dismiss the people so they can go to the villages and get some supper."

Jesus said, "There is no need to dismiss them. You give them supper."

"All we have are five loaves of bread and two fish," they said.

Jesus said, "Bring them here."

Like the woman with the cruse of oil and the widow with just enough oil and flour to make one more meal, all God asks of us is what we have, nothing more, but he does want all we have.

In the same way, Peter took the step of faith and walked on water. Here all Peter had was faith in Jesus and a step of obedience.

He believed.
He obeyed.
He walked on water.

That is all God asks of us!

"Give me what you've got," He says!

Matthew 14:15-18; 2 Kings 4:1-8; 1 Kings 17:12-14; Matthew 14:28-29
