I Don't Have Much

Anyone can be generous. 
One doesn't have to be wealthy to be generous.
To be and become generous all you have to do is give. 

You might say, "I don't have much."
Okay.  But that doesn't mean that you can't give.
Oh...I bet you're waiting.
Once you have more...Then you will start giving.
But you won't.

There simply comes a time when you choose to be generous.
Rarely does it start after you've made your millions.
Most times, it generosity starts while you making your hundreds.

God is faithful.  
You can trust Him.
Even with your little tithe (10%).
What you might discover...
Is that God takes your little and does a whole lot. 

Read this generous story about a kid who gave what little he had.

John 6:1-13 (NET)
6 After this Jesus went away to the other side of the Sea of Galilee (also called the Sea of Tiberias). 2 A large crowd was following him because they were observing the miraculous signs he was performing on the sick. 3 So Jesus went on up the mountainside and sat down there with his disciples. 4 (Now the Jewish feast of the Passover was near.) 5 Then Jesus, when he looked up and saw that a large crowd was coming to him, said to Philip, “Where can we buy bread so that these people may eat?” 6 (Now Jesus said this to test him, for he knew what he was going to do.) 7 Philip replied, “Two hundred silver coins worth of bread would not be enough for them, for each one to get a little.” 8 One of Jesus’ disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, said to him, 9 “Here is a boy who has five barley loaves and two fish, but what good are these for so many people?”  10 Jesus said, “Have the people sit down.” (Now there was a lot of grass in that place.) So the men sat down, about five thousand in number. 11 Then Jesus took the loaves, and when he had given thanks, he distributed the bread to those who were seated. He then did the same with the fish, as much as they wanted. 12 When they were all satisfied, Jesus said to his disciples, “Gather up the broken pieces that are left over, so that nothing is wasted.” 13 So they gathered them up and filled twelve baskets with broken pieces from the five barley loaves left over by the people who had eaten."

What do you think was going through that kids mind?
Do you think he was upset that he gave?
What do you think the disciples were thinking?

Please trust this...
You can never ever out give God.
He won't let you.
But you should try!

Have a generous day,
Pastor Matt
