Bring them here to me.
Jesus’ disciples asked him to dismiss the crowd so the people could go buy themselves some dinner. He said, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.”
“But we have only five loaves of bread and two fish,” they protested.
“Bring them to me,” he said.
You know what he did with that skimpy snack.
Do you feel inadequate? “I don’t have the ability. I don’t have the resources. All I have is . . .”
Bring it to me, Jesus says.
He doesn’t demand abilities and resources that you don’t have. Just bring him what you have. He asks for no more; you should offer no less.
He can do a lot with your little. He “is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine” (Eph 3:20).
At the end, we will probably have more regret
about what we didn’t do than about what we did.
