Just a Pot of Oil

"And she said, Thine handmaid hath not any thing in the house, save a pot of oil." 2 Kings 4:2

Oh how well I resonate with her. This handmaid so often hath not much of anything to give either..

Energy, emotional resilience, loving support for needy hungry hearts, all run out and drain dry. The single pot of oil that I have, meager as it is, is desire. I desire to love, desire to help, desire to meet every need..

Sweet Saviour He is Who asks not how much we have to give, but rather how much we are willing to give of what we have.

And He still knows how to multiply.
