When the Galilean boy brought his bread to Jesus, what did Jesus do with it?
He broke it.
God will always break what is offered to Him.
He breaks what He takes, then blesses and uses it to meet men’s need.
Is not this true to your experience and mine?
You give yourself to the Lord, and at once everything goes so badly wrong that you are tempted to find fault with His ways.
To persist in such an attitude is to be broken, yes indeed, but to what purpose?
You have gone too far for the world to use you but you have not gone far enough for God.
This is the tragedy of many a Christian.
Do we want Him to use us?
Then day by day let us go on giving to Him, not finding fault with His methods but accepting His handling of us with praise and expectation.
