Enough to Share

The Lord’s prayer says, “Give us this day our daily bread.” It is a simple plea for God to provide us enough to live on for a single day.

Honestly, I have never been forced to pray for a single meal. God has always provided me with enough food to fill cabinets, a refrigerator, and a freezer. Not only that, I have a closet full of clothes, multiple vehicles, and all kinds of items for personal entertainment. God has blessed me abundantly.

During seasons like Christmas, I am reminded that I am so blessed that I have not only enough for today, but I also have enough to share. Life was never meant to be like a reservoir that collects items into abundance. Instead, it is like a river where things flow through your life to others.

Christmas is a time to receive, and it is also a time to give. Paul quotes Jesus in Acts chapter 20 and says, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” Since that is true, allow your abundance to be a gift for someone else so that you may both be blessed in the end.
