When Jesus fed five thousand plus people, the disciples picked up 12 baskets of left overs. What if he had fed ten thousand plus people? Yup, there very well could have been 24 baskets of surplus.
When God loves, His love doesn’t divide. It multiplies.
He doesn’t divvy up His generosity either. He multiplies it. There is more than sufficient.
So when our God demonstrates His math nature, it becomes an example we can copy. The addition of a child to the family does not divide the hearts of loving parents. Their love grows with each new member of the family.
When we generously give, we generously receive. It might not always be in the same way, but it is more than sufficient, and often is unexpected.
During this election season we are reminded that our hearts are bigger than when we started out in missions 32 years ago. We have grown to love other countries and other people groups as much as we love our passport country. We aren’t torn or divided in our love. On the contrary—that love grows. Our love for Mexico City and the whole central region of Mexico is growing more every day.
To all of you who nourish that love, thank you. May you experience a hundred fold the generosity you have shown to us.
