What do I have?

"I have no silver or gold, but what I have I give you." (Acts 3:6 NRSV)

These are words Peter spoke to a beggar who needed help. I encounter people who need help just about everyday. Some have financial issues, but for the most part, people need assistance with other circumstances--relationships, depression, fears and failures.

I have come to realize that offering people money doesn't resolve most of the issues they face. That's a good thing, because, like Peter, I don't have a lot of money that I could offer them anyway.

What do I have that I can give to people in need?
Peter knew right away what he could give to this man.

Am I full enough of Jesus so that I can give enough of Him away?
I never know when I might come across someone who needs Him.
