Bread Crumbs Don't lie...


A whole is made up of several parts, and several parts make up a whole. Loaves of bread can be sold and bought in a variety of ways. Some bakery suppliers sell their bread freshly baked from the oven, wrapped in the exact way the bread came out...full, whole, never-been-sliced bread, fresh...Agege style! Some other bakeries may slice their bread to cause customer attraction to the softness of the bread within. If you're a customer and you look carefully in between the neatly sliced bread, you may observe the whiteness of the wheat and just your imagination of the softness can lure you into the mouse-trap of buying the bread.

A whole loaf of bread, when broken down to pieces, literally consists of crumbs of bread, and those crumbs of bread make up the whole loaf. I read Matthew 15 this morning where a woman from Canaan ran to Jesus, begging Him to heal her daughter who was demon-possessed. Jesus replied that He was sent to the lost sheep of the house of Israel and it is only right for the children's bread not to be tossed to dogs. She didn't quit there though, but she thought about it and realized that even when dogs sit at their master's table, they get filled by the crumbs that fall off their master's plate and she spoke that out loudly so Jesus could hear. He looked back and said, "what GREAT faith, let it be to you as you desire." And it was recorded that her daughter was made whole at that very moment.

Jesus allowed that particular scene to happen just to show that crumbs of bread from God amount to something great in God's book. Combining a lot of the crumbs can bring forth many miracles in your life. After Jesus performed the miracle of feeding 5000 people with only 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish, the disciples later were recorded to have gathered 12 baskets of the crumbs of bread that were left over. 12 FULL BASKETS OF CRUMBS? How many loaves of bread did that come off? Definitely more than 5...


Bread crumbs don't lie! You can look at one loaf of bread as small, but when it is broken down into tiny slices, it can be passed around your dinner table. Most especially, bread crumbs from God don't lie. You may be blessed with only a little bit right now, but a multiplication is going on in the background that you cannot see. You may have just a little bit, but God is in the process of multiplying it into many baskets that can feed millions of people. You can pray that God should give you full loaves of bread, but during your period of preparation, you may given just a few crumbs instead to do business with, all you have to do is gather your crumbs together and make it a full loaf. Do not despise the 'little' that you have right now. In luke 19, a story was told of a master who gave ten servants one mina each (the currency at that time) to do business. The first servant to report back to his master did business with that one mina and ended up with ten minas as profit, and his master said to him, "well done good servant, because you were faithful in very little, have authority over ten cities."

All we have to do is just be faithful in the little we have, even if it is just one mina we have right now. Be faithful with one loaf of bread, and it will multiply. Be faithful with one dollar, and your profit will be much. Be faithful with the words you've heard from God...receive them and use them as precious seeds to sow into the lives of others, and your gain will be much...it doesn't matter how much you know now. If you're faithful with the little you have, God will bless you with more. If you're faithful with the little responsibilities you have at your job right now, you will be blessed with heading several companies in the nearest future...


Bread crumbs don't lie...they amount to a whole loaf...
