And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. 2 Corinthians 9:8
Enough To Spare
There was one rule in elementary school that all of us remember, “If you don’t have enough for everybody then put it away.” Now it was not a written rule. It was never found in a syllabus, but we had all heard it at one time or another. It was pronounced whenever someone would try to sneak a snack in class. The teacher would say, if you don’t have enough for everyone, then you can’t eat it.” This was a great way to keep order in the class unless Chris Franklin was in your class.
One day in the third grade Chris was trying to have a snack in the back of the class. Of course, he got caught and the teacher told him the rule. So he put his chips away and went back to doing his school work. The next day, Chris did the same thing and when the teacher stopped him to remind him of the “rule” Chris stood up, went to his locker and pulled out a box of chips and started giving them out to everyone in the class including the teacher. What our teacher didn’t know was Chris’s parents ran a corner store. When she told Chris the rule the day before he went home and decided to bring a full box of chips to school the next day from home because he had more than enough to share. Needless to say, that day we feasted in class, including the teacher.
Friends, when you are connected to God you will have enough to spare. God has the cattle on a thousand hills and everything else on the earth. When we are children of God, God supplies enough for us and will give us enough for others. God is a generous God and wants us to be generous as well. So never be afraid to go to God for anything, as our father he will give you enough and enough to spare.
