John 6:4- 7 Now the Passover, a feast of the Jews, was near. 5 Then Jesus lifted up His eyes, and seeing a great multitude coming toward Him, He said to Philip, “Where shall we buy bread, that these may eat?” 6 But this He said to test him, for He Himself knew what He would do. 7 Philip answered Him, “Two hundred denarii worth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may have a little.”
Philip said to Lord Jesus that two hundred dinari worth of bread is not sufficient to buy bread for the people even if they take a small piece of the bread. Likewise, many today in their life are trying to do what God told them to do by money. They look at the task by taking how much money is needed to do this Job or work. When they look at that perspective, always there wont be sufficient enough money to do the work. God’s work can not be quantified with money, if we did, then we will always have shortage. When our Lord lived in this world as a Son of Man, God provided Him through others for His living and for His disciples needs. The donkey that He rode was given, the Passover room was arranged, His tax was paid by a fish. Money might be the transaction currency of this world to do the things of God, but it should not be in the beginning of God’s work or in the end. The beginning of any God’s work is faith and the ending of God’s work is His abundance blessing and glory. Do not quantify God’s task in terms of money that you have or need to have; if we do then we will always be in short of doing that task.
