giving up what you have.

I love it when God give me a "double whamie".
Our Daily Bread today was about the little boy giving up his lunch so Jesus could feed thousands of people. Can you imagine how that little boy felt? "I'm just boy, with one small lunch, what good can I do........besides, I'm HUNGRY and that is MY lunch". but he gave that one small thing and look what happened. then the healthy reflection is talking about the same thing.
The last several years, I've done alot of "taking" and there are times when I feel like all I do is TAKE TAKE TAKE. But I have to realize there is a time for graciously accepting much needed help and a time for giving. And who knows how my simple crochet projects help out the people I give them to. or the time that I can give to my favorite charities (which isn't nearly what I would like it to be). I need to trust God with my "small lunch". Who knows what he will do with it.
