I love online banking. It’s so convenient. A few clicks of the mouse and my funds are moved from place to place. No more writing checks. No more late payments (well, there were really none of those before). I can actually sit in a small room in Siberia and still reallocate my resources.
I wonder if that’s the view that God has? Not that He’s in Siberia (I really hope heaven is warmer than that–not too warm, though). But, from His vantage point, He moves resources from one place to another. He sees a need and He sees the resources and He moves them…or, more specifically, He moves us to move them
When we realize that what we have — time, energy, money, stuff –is really His, then we aren’t surprised nor resistant to Him asking us to meet the needs of a hungry child, a homeless family, or a grieving mother. He clicks the mouse a few times and voila, His resources once in our account are now reallocated to the life of a needy situation.
What do you think? Are you willing to have His resources moved from your care to that of another?
