give them what you have (Mark 6:30-44)

“Jesus Feeding the Multitude”, Gustave Dore’, 1865
You give them something to eat,” Jesus said. “Right… you want me to blow 8 month’s salary on, … on bread?!%^$***” “That’s not what I said,” responded Jesus, “just give them what you already have.”
How many times does ministry never happen because we don’t believe that what we already have could possibly be sufficient? It isn’t of course, but infused with the power of the Spirit it will more than suffice.
What has Jesus been asking of you? What do you already have? Okay … now, what would he have you do with it?
