BREAD IN THE HAND


David used what he had--a sling. For the little boy at the feeding of the 5,000 it was five loaves and two fish. For Samson it was the jawbone of a donkey. God can use anything.


The major problem is workers in the Philippines nowadays have a personal slogan: "No support, no work." They live by fix. They never involve in the ministry without sure support or someone to backup their financial needs.


I remember the children in World War II. At the close of the war, the Allied armies gathered up many hungry orphans. They were placed in camps where they were well-fed. Despite excellent care, they slept poorly. They seemed nervous and afraid.


Finally, a psychologist came up with the solution. Each child was given a piece of bread to hold after he was put to bed. This particular piece of bread was just to be held--not eaten. The piece of bread produced wonderful results. The children went to bed knowing instinctively they would have food to eat the next day. That guarantee gave the children a restful and contented sleep.


A Committed Christian serves the Lord absolutely. They serve and live by faith in God. "My job is to do the best I can. The rest is in God's hands." --Martin Luther Jr


From Joel Santos' Sermon "A Committed Christian"
