In this week’s Deeper in Christ video we get to hear from Bailey Griffin who recently moved to North Carolina with her husband, Preston, to be on Young Life Staff in Fayettville. During this season of life, Bailey has reflected on John 6, which is from the story of Jesus feeding the five thousand.
Verse 9 says, “Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?” -John 6:9
Bailey reflects on how God can make much with little. There are days where we can’t give a lot, but God gives more. There are days where we question if it is even worth giving what little we do have.
Bailey reminds us that the answer is YES! Yes because God treasures what you can give and you are part of something bigger than you realize.
Think back to this past week. When was a time that you felt spent and didn’t have much to give? How did that feel? What would happen if, instead of dwelling on the negative, you focused on the great things God is doing?
