God Says Your "Little" Is Enough"

Aug 27, 2021
If you only have a little to give to God, your "little" is enough. Consider the story of Elijah and the widow (1 Kings 17:8-16). The story occurs during a drought. God instructs Elijah to go to a place called Zarephath where Elijah will find a widow. Notices the number of times the word "little" is mentioned
 
Then the word of the LORD came to him, 9 “Arise, go to Zarephath, which belongs to Sidon, and dwell there. Behold, I have commanded a widow there to feed you.” So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, behold, a widow was there gathering sticks. And he called to her and said, “Bring me a little water in a vessel, that I may drink.” And as she was going to bring it, he called to her and said, “Bring me a morsel of bread in your hand.” And she said, “As the LORD your God lives, I have nothing baked, only a handful of flour in a jar and a little oil in a jug. And now I am gathering a couple of sticks that I may go in and prepare it for myself and my son, that we may eat it and die.” And Elijah said to her, “Do not fear; go and do as you have said. But first, make me a little cake of it and bring it to me, and afterward make something for yourself and your son. For thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, ‘The jar of flour shall not be spent, and the jug of oil shall not be empty, until the day that the LORD sends rain upon the earth.’” And she went and did as Elijah said. And she and he and her household ate for many days. The jar of flour was not spent, neither did the jug of oil become empty, according to the word of the LORD that he spoke by Elijah.
 
The widow didn't have much. Certainly, she must felt inferior about what she had, even planning to eat the little she had along with her son and then die.
 
What is remarkable in this story is the woman's willingness to do what the prophet instructed her to do. She did not know what would come of her sharing. In fact, she didn't have enough to even share with this stranger.
 
But what she did have was good enough. The scripture says the jar of flour was NOT SPENT, neither did the jug of oil BECOME EMPTY. The scripture did not say that her little became much or abundant. It says it was not spent and did not become empty. She kept pouring out the little and that little became enough.
 
You may think your little is not enough, but God says it is. What is "your little":
  • Little voice?
  • Little money?
  • Little house?
  • Little food?
  • Little smarts?
  • Little love?
  • Little friends?
  • Little beauty?
  • Little education?
  • Little skill?
  • Little talent?
  • Little influence?
  • Little popularity?
  • Little self-confidence?
 
 
God Says Your "Little" Is Enough". You don't have to wait until you have a lot or until you feel good enough with what you have or who you are before you share.
 
Share the "little" you already have or already are to make someone's life better, easier, less stressful, sweeter, happier, meaningful.
 
When you share your little - even if you are afraid or embarrassed to share - you bring blessings upon your life and the life of others. Go out today and share your little and watch the flow of blessings into your life.
 
So, Beautiful: what's your LITTLE?
