• The Law of the Empty Hand (Matthew 14.13-21)

    You Deserve a Break Today

    If ever anyone had a good excuse to take a break, it was Jesus in this passage. Yet in spite of His physical and emotional weariness He continued to pour himself out and to teach his disciples to do so as well.

    “You give them something to eat.” (Matthew 14.16)

    The Law of the Empty Hand

    To experience the fullness of God’s blessings  TO and THROUGH you, you must first let go of everything you hold dear.

    It only takes a small wrinkle to derail a great train, and a drop of poison to taint the whole well.
