Fresh Hope – 27th August 2016

When you give the right thing to the right person, it’s amazing what you get .

If you gave me some tins of paint and expected something awesome, you’d be disappointed. Yet, give the same paints to an artist and you can expect something great.

If you give a pile of bricks to someone and say “build me a wall”, you may be disappointed, but give them to an experienced bricklayer and you’ll be pleased with the result.

How many of you remember the cookery show ‘Ready, Steady, Cook’ ? It’s where you presented a bag of ingredients to a chef and said “cook something with that.” Whenever you give food to a great chef, you can expect something wonderful.

When you give God your life it’s amazing what He will do with it. It can be broken or abused, tired or worn, yet God will turn it into something beautiful.

When you give God your finance, it’s amazing what He can do with it.
When He took the five loaves and two fish, He turned them into a miracle, because the little boy was willing to trust Jesus with it.

The problem is that we give the wrong things to the wrong people, like the food or the bricks or the paint.

But we also trust the wrong people with things that really matter. Like our money…or our lives.
Trust Jesus with what you have today. You’ll be amazed at what He can do.

Start with yourself. That’s a great place to begin.
