More Than Enough

I really enjoy home gardening. This hobby is one that has always been a favorite of mine. This year I planted tomatoes—3 varieties. And cucumbers. And, two varieties of peppers. Tomatoes have been coming in for the past two weeks; we have seemingly endless amounts of the cherry variety. And, best of all, this past week, the cucumbers really peaked. Not only do we have enough for our family, but there’s more than enough to go around and be shared with others. Right now, our refrigerator is ridiculously full of cucumbers; tomorrow they will find their way to our local homeless shelter. Our garden’s harvest is a reminder to me of the God we serve. He is more than enough. My garden is a reminder of God’s provision to me. Not only does He take care of our family with it but it is potentially a blessing to many people, as well. God is amazing, isn’t He. How a few small packages of seeds and some plants can reap a crop that is so plentiful! That’s what I so enjoy about God. I can see His signature all over this! Not only does He give me enough for our family but also enough to bless others. Luke 6:38 states: “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” We are intended to be a blessing. Don’t let the good with which you have been entrusted stop with you. Kindness, like cucumbers, is meant to be shared.
