Loaves and Fishes
We all know this story, Jesus spent days ministering to the masses that had followed him, curing many ailments, and the time came that they were hungry. Jesus asked how much food they had and they thought they did not have enough. Undeterred Jesus broke what they had and shared with the thousands gathered. In what seems like a miracle, everyone ate, was full, and there were leftovers. How could there be more left than what they started with? The faithful will be rewarded by sharing with others. This is our lesson to give all we have to the greater community and we will find an abundance when we are done. It is our lesson in the body being greater than the sum of the parts.
Glory to God whose power, working in us, can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine.
