I think it's a pretty understood thing that as a society, we love "more". We love excess and extra and often times we want it immediately. And especially when it comes to our needs, when it comes to the things that we're believing God for; we want it now and we want extra. The good news is that we serve of a God of abundance and multiplication but his process may not always be our preference. When it comes to what we're asking God for many times before we see the harvest God asks us to plant our seed. Our seed is that we have in our hands right now, it's the thing no matter how small or little that we're able to give or able to do. It could be money, time, encouragement, it's whatever you have that you are able to "plant". God asks us to do what we can and trust Him with the rest, because the seed was never meant to match the need. We plant our "seed" knowing that God is not moved by perfection or need but he is moved by our faith. 

Matthew 14 : 14-21

When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick. As evening approached, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late. Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food.”Jesus replied, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.”
“We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish,” they answered.“Bring them here to me,” he said. And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.
