I am so excited for our house guests to come! I want everything to be just right for them…their room, the bathroom, the house, the kids. As I try to finish these last-minute preparations, I keep finding things left undone.
Jesus and his disciples were in a remote place, attempting to rest after a season of miracles and ministry. They were exhausted and needed to unwind, but the crowds found them anyways. Of course, no one had enough food to feed the 5,000 men and their wives and children.
The disciples were understandably stressed by the dilemma. They asked Jesus what to do. He told the to bring WHAT THEY HAD. Miraculously, Jesus made that little bit of food stretch far enough to feed over 5,000 people!!
While I was berating myself for not doing more, the Holy Spirit reminded me that my best is enough. Not because it is good enough on its own—but because Jesus performs a miracle to make it good enough. Jesus loves to take my simple offerings and make them good enough for is purposes.
