Work With The Tools You Have!

WORK WITH THE TOOLS YOU HAVE!: You have something with which you can get started...

You may be familiar with the story of the five loaves of bread and two fishes. It was one of the miracles Jesus did while He was on earth. The Bible records that after a long day of following Jesus and listening to His teachings, the multitudes were exhausted, and Jesus having compassion for them, decided to feed them.

At Jesus'announcement, one of His disciples argued that they didn't have the means to feed such a large multitude. There were five thousand men, children and women excluded. Meaning there were probably over ten thousand people there. But another discipline said, "There is a lad who has fives loaves and two fishes..." It was with these five loaves and two fishes that one of the greatest miracles was wrought.

There are many lessons to learn from this story, but the lesson I want to hammer on is that of working with the tools you have. The truth is, all of us have something. Something with which we can make a significant change. From the story, one of the disciples focused his attention on the challenge they were faced with and how difficult it all seemed, while the other pointed out that they had something, however small it seemed. They had something to work with.

There's always something to get started with. When you start out, it may seem like you have nothing to offer. Nothing to help you stand out from the multitude of people that are in your field. I've learned that sometimes we are the ones who make a mountain out of a molehill situation. Maybe due to fears, doubt, or uncertainty.

Whatever the case may be, I'll like you to know that God does not leave us empty. There is always something to work with. No matter how little. No matter how mundane it seems. Work those tools. Get started with those seemingly ordinary tools. Extraordinary things are usually made up of ordinary things that others ignore. Work with those little tools you have!
