Save The Leftovers



Matthew 14:20: And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.
Though the people had gotten a meal in a marvelous way, they were not very thoughtful about the marvel. They ate till they had enough, and then flung the residue away. Not every one would be so thoughtless. But a great many saved enough fragments that twelve baskets were filled with the leftovers.
One would have expected these people, each one, to take his own remaining fragment as an interesting memento of the wonderful miracle. Even if it became hard as stone it would still have been there to recall the mercy and power of Jesus on an occasion of great need.
To make this personal, I feel that there are many that have a few leftovers who need to be sharing them with others. You may have heard a Sermon which burned an indelible impression on you. You need to share it with someone. A service, a Camp-Meeting, a Bible Study, you may have attended, if you remember them they are   leftovers of a good spiritual meal you enjoyed.
You may have Sermons on tape, or transcript, that could be shared. You may say that was a long time ago and the bread that I received then is stale and hard by now. Bring it to Jesus, put it back into His hands, and it will feed a multitude.
Some Preachers may have a lifetime of Sermon Notes, Bible Lessons, Memories, Mementos, Leftovers from By-Gone Days, put them on the Web, write a Book, share them some way with someone.
This bread never becomes stale, it is eternal.
Jesus Says, “That nothing be lost.” (John 6:12)
“Give Ye Them To Eat.”
