Reflections… a Scripture verse and inspiration for daily living [2/25]

Passage: John 6:1-15
Verse: John 6:12b (NIV 2011)
“Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted.”

Do we always appreciate the things that have been given to us? Sometimes we take things for granted and forget how blessed we really are.  In this passage of Scripture, we learn about Jesus feeding about five thousand people.  He is our provider!  In addition, we learned how Jesus instructed His disciples to collect the food that was left over.  We, too, are not to let the things that the Lord provides go to waste.  He provides for us in so many ways.  He blesses us with life… spiritually, physically, and emotionally… each and every day.  May we appreciate the many blessings we receive.  May we share from our abundance, so nothing that we have received will go to waste.  May we ask the Lord for those things we truly need and trust that He will provide.  (inspired by Reflecting God – Devotions for Holy Living, WordAction Publishing Company)
