In whose hands is your small group?

This morning I read from Mark 6, which includes the account of Jesus feeding 5,000 people with five loaves of bread and two fish. I love Wiersbe’s illumination in his commentary:

The miracle took place in His hands, not in theirs; for whatever we give to Him, He can bless and multiply. We are not manufacturers; we are only distributors.
—Warren Wiersbe, Bible Exposition Commentary – New Testament

What are you holding onto in your own hands today? Your small group? Your family? Your finances? Your ministry? Your job? When we place what we’ve been given in Jesus’ hands–an act of surrender and stewardship–he has the power to multiply it. In his hands, he provides superabundantly–to overflowing (John 10:10).

Would you like to see your small group grow and multiply? Would you like Him to bless your life? It’s not so much about your methods, your goals, and your abilities. It’s about putting the group–and your very life–in Jesus’ hands and then being a faithful steward in your role.
