And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would. John 6:11
They did not have the resources required by Jesus to feed the five thousand people but were very diligent in distributing it. It’s easy to count yourself out especially when others have the connections and finance to move a vision or a purpose. Yet a careful perusal of your life will prove that you have something different to help. (Copy and tweet). Like the disciples, you may not have the resources needed to help a vision but your time and your concern about the vision will count a lot. (Copy and tweet).
There are people who are constantly fasting, praying and working behind the scenes to make sure that an idea or vision is bettered. They are evangelists who relentlessly reach out to others with the details of the vision. They might not have the strength and capacity to fight the “Goliaths” of life but have what it takes to bring the “Davids” into the presence of the King Saul. (Copy and tweet).
I see the disciple type of people as individuals who inspite of their lack of the needed expertise help with everything else they’ve got. The disciples had the skill of orderly arrangement and distribution- a vital tool in helping Jesus achieve the miracle. (Copy and tweet). Obed-Edom could not go with King David to bring the ark of God back to his people. Yet he was prepared to allow the King to bring the ark into his house when the Lord killed Uzzah. (Copy and tweet)
The Lord eventually blessed the house of Obed-Edom and prospered him. Even though the Ark was eventually taken away, the blessings were to remain in Obed-Edom forever. When we are able to keep some one else's God will surely bring us our own. (Copy and tweet).
Never underestimate what the disciple type of people we relate to are capable of doing. Every little effort of the disciple type of people helps achieve the dreams and aspirations of a visionary. (Copy and tweet).
What other doings of the disciple type of people can you think of? Let me know your thoughts.
