Our God is a sharing God! He loves to share. It is His nature. It is who He is.
*God shared His Son Jesus with mankind
*He shares His creation with us (Gen 2, Psalm 50:10-12)
*He shares His angels with us to protect us and minister unto us (Psalm 91:11, Hebrews 1:14)
*He shares His Spirit with us to help. and guide us in life (1 John 4:13, John 14:26)
In the multiplying of the bread & fish encounter, Jesus prayed, God multiplied and everyone (5 000 excluding woman & children) was fed. God shared food with everyone. He also had the left overs collected by the 12 disciples in baskets ~
Living Bible (TLB)
17 ‘And everyone ate and ate; still, twelve basketfuls of scraps were picked up afterwards!’
I was pondering on this point and it must have been, that as they, the disciples, went home that they continued to distribute food to those who perhaps could not make it to the meeting where Jesus taught. It might also be that God shared the food with the households of the disciples so they may also share in God’s goodness and provision. When God blesses and shares His goodness, provision and love, there is always enough and left over!
God shared Jesus, the Bread of Life, with us (John 6:48).
The only thing that God will not share is His Glory (Isaiah 42:8).
Everything else, He lovingly shares with all of us. What a wonderful God we serve!
God calls us to also share all we have & have been blessed with, by Him, with others (Acts 4:32).
Be blessed as your reflect on God’s sharing goodness and share something today with another person, as your are being led by the Holy Spirit…
In Christ our Lord
