“If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.” Matthew 5:41-42 NIV
Read: Matthew 5:38-48
Do you want just a little more than you have? Would an extra weeks pay be helpful? How about a weeks worth of groceries for your family? Could you use a few days off?
What about a little more forgiveness or being a little closer to GOD? Being closer with GOD is easier than you might think.
Just a little more effort will give you a little more…more physical strength, more emotional strength and much more spiritual strength.
Most in this world are looking for more of everything, but want to give a little less or a lot less, rather than just a little more. Those who give a little less will get a little less and all too often will get a lot less. Just a little more will give you a little more or a lot more. A little less will eventually give you less and less and less.
Are you giving GOD enough? Is it just enough or a little extra? Is your ‘just a little more’ not just an extra twenty in the offering plate? A little more is just a little more time in prayer, just a little more volunteering at church, just a little more time with someone going through a difficult time and just a little more time reading and studying GOD’S Word.
There is more than just a little more waiting for you. All you have to do is put forth just a little more effort. By the way…when you think you have given just a little more, then do just a little more again.
Today’s prayer: “MY REDEEMING SAVIOUR, Thank YOU for all YOU have given me. I have received more than I have been given because YOU love me. Help me give to others just a little more. Amen.”
