A smorgasbord of Pies
Posted on 14 March 2016
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. - John 10:10
This verse was part of my devotions recently talking about how we often have a scarcity mentality with God. If he answers someone else's prayers or provides for someone else's needs then it means less for us.
In my head, I kind of think of it like a pie. Like there only one pie, and every slice that someone else gets means less is available for me. BUT we can celebrate with others because there is MORE than enough to go around. It's like there is a pie smorgasbord; apple pie, rhubarb pie, chocolate pie, banoffie pie....all the pies! He gave us life, and life to the FULL!
We need to keep praying and hoping. We need to pray for others. We need to celebrate with them when their prayers get answered, because it doesn't mean mine now won't.
That is the good news folks! : )
