Who likes watermelon? Who would have ever guessed that a black seed would become a green watermelon with a red interior that tastes amazing!
“I have observed the watermelon seed. It has the power of drawing from the ground and through itself 200,000 times its weight: and when you can tell me how it takes this material and out of it colors an outside surface beyond the imitation of art, and then forms in it a white rind and within that again a side of red heart, thickly inlaid with black seeds, each one of which in turn is capable of drawing through itself 200,000 times its weight — when you can explain to me the mystery of a watermelon, you can ask me to explain the mystery of God.” William Jennings Bryan
Small things can become big things when you give them to God.
Have you noticed that God uses small things to accomplish big things?
Philips response lets us know that this is no normal sized crowd.
Maybe Andrew believed that if Jesus could raise the dead, heal blind people and walk on water he could easily feed 5000 with some minnows and crackers.
Small things can become big things when you give them to God.
Serving, teaching and giving on Sunday may seem like such a small thing to you and me but small things can become big things when you give them to God.
Giving: It’s is bigger than you think.
Giving your Time, Talent and Treasure makes a bigger difference than you think it does.
Giving: It will cost you if you do and it will cost you if you don’t.
Think about it. Thee little boy who gave away his lunch gave up his lunch but he got to see what his lunch could really do when he gave it to Jesus. You may give some time or some money but for the most part, the reward, the blessing supersedes the cost when we give.
It will cost you something to give because if it didn’t it wouldn’t be worth anything.
Jesus understood that saving us would cost him everything. Listen to what He prayed to God in the Garden before His crucifixion.
Let’s be honest, there is a death that goes with giving. When you give, it will cost you something and it should.
You could say, giving requires dying. You have to die to one thing to live for another.
I’ve heard it said this way, If we do the little things like they are big things, then God will do the big things like they are little things.
When we give we increase and when we don’t we decrease.
What if the little boy wouldn’t have given his two fish and five loaves to Jesus? What if he would have said, “No, this is my lunch get your own.” What if he would have said, “If I give you my lunch then I won’t have anything.”
If we only focus on the cost the opportunity will be lost.
If you really want to experience all that God has for you it will involve giving.
Small things can become big things when you give them to God.
