Thanksgiving Countdown ChallengeT(hanksgiving) -17 Devotion
Thankful for Even a Little Bit
Imagine for a moment you have prepared Thanksgiving dinner for your small family, just 3, 4 or maybe 5 people. Suddenly, there are knocks at the door & the next thing you know, you have 20+ people in your home, all wanting turkey, dressings & the trimmings! YIKES! How would you manage?
This is exactly the situation Jesus was facing in the verse today. A multitude of people in the middle of nowhere, all of them hungry & only small fish & bread to feed them. What to do? Well, Jesus knew just what to do. He gave thanks for what they had & began breaking the fish & bread up to be distributed to those present. When everyone had eaten, there was food left over.
We often think we don’t have enough for the task at hand. Not enough time. Not enough money. Not enough resources. This is when we need to give thanks for what we do have & have faith God hears us & insures it is not one enough but some left over. God is good & He provides for our needs.
