READ: John 6:5-14
When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.
Jesus taught a great lesson when He gathered the crumbs after feeding the multitude on the mountain.
A small boy's lunch of five barley loaves of bread and two small fishes was blessed by Jesus, and He fed them all. Then He collected twelve baskets of crumbs. If you want to follow somebody, follow Jesus. He is the express image of God Himself.
To see what God Himself would have done, look at Jesus. Why would someone who could afford to take five thousand people to the restaurant be interested in crumbs? The answer is simple: frugality! It is often rich people who gather crumbs. If you do not develop to the point where crumbs are important, you will never be rich, neither will you prosper.
The Lord told me when we started the Lighthouse Cathedral project, "If you count your pennies, you will go very far."I have found God's words to be true. In our church we do not have any big business tycoon who sponsors our building projects or any other project. Many people are just average. Yet we have gone very far and completed our multi-million cedi Cathedral. We gathered the crumbs!
It is the crumbs that make up the whole meal. When you add up all the crumbs, you will become rich. Identify the few things that God has given you, and consider them to be important.
If only you can stay at the same income level and reduce the waste, suddenly you will increase and become rich.
