We, MLHS, recently got new carpet in our office. That required moving all the stuff out and, then, all the stuff back in. As i was moving all this stuff around, i was wondering how I got all this stuff. Then my eclectic brain went “Abraham.” Abraham was extremely blessed. Even when Lot took the best of the land, the blessings did not stop. You have to wonder if Abraham ever wondered, “Where did i get all this stuff?” Abraham lived in a tent, and he picked up all his stuff and moved from time-to-time. i wonder if he ever regretted all the blessings he received? i was just moving my office and found myself questioning all the blessings the Lord has bestowed on me—and i do not have any camels in my office. We are not exactly sure how much stuff Abraham had, but when Lot was kidnapped and Abraham went to get him back, he took 318 of his own trained men – Genesis 14:14. His “tent” was pretty big, in fact, probably bigger than Northrop. He had to have a lot of stuff to maintain a trained “staff” of 318+. Melchizedek recognized that Abraham was blessed beyond normal circumstance - Genesis 14:18ff. Malachi talks about the Lord opening the floodgates of blessings to those who trust Him. Malachi states this trust is demonstrated with tithing – Malachi 3. Job is another example of someone who was blessed by God, and Job only had 6,000 camels. (Both Job and Abraham clearly had to have had fertile pastures, if you know what i mean.) The biggest trick is: what do we do with all of our stuff? Scripture is very clear – Share. Abraham used his camels to help provide for 318 men and their families. The early Christian church, recorded in Acts, is a great example for us. We need to use our stuff, our gifts, our talent, and our treasures to help one another. Help do what? That is a good question. The timeless answer is: we should use all our stuff, all our everything, to point others to Christ. This is not a pain free sharing experience, because our human nature would rather look the other direction. Pointing others requires a change in direction, and it is a direction our sinfulness does not want to go. That is why the God’s Word is full of encouragement for the sharers in the shape of “patience,” “persistence,” and “endurance” – Gal 6:9. Use your camels! Share your stuff in an effort to share the Love of Christ with others. Help us do the same. That Love is eternal. The camels are temporary. May God continue to bless your all!
Come Lord Jesus, Amen! Paul Steinhaus Principal/Teacher/Coach
