Making a meal stretch

I thought of so many times when my mom would have an extra guest show up and she would share with me. “Okay, we need to figure out how we’re going to make this meal go a little further.”

So, she would add some extra potatoes or maybe rice or an additional vegetable dish or maybe just throw some extra leaves in the salad, just to make the meal be enough for everybody. She also always said F.H.V. – Family Hold Back to make sure the guest received their fair share first.

It reminds me about the lady and the bottles of oil in the Bible and how by trusting Jesus, her oil just continued to grow and grow, she was able to be wealthy. It makes me think about how if we are smart with our money – there are ways we can continue to make our money grow and never run out.
