Matthew 14:16–But Jesus said to them, “They do not need to go away, you give them something to eat!”
When people come to us in need, desperate for Jesus Christ in their life, do we answer them and address their need and bring them to our Lord? Or do we instead tell them to go visit the pastor, or the church, or some other place without us meeting any of their needs? God brings people into our lives for us to minister to. We are to allow God to meet their needs through us, not just blindly send them away.
Lord, help me to see and recognize the opportunities to minister to others when You bring them my way. I don’t want to allow anyone to leave hungry for You because I sent them away.
