A Thought to Ponder Upon – John 6:1-21 from Sacred Space
This scene provides a revelation of the sort of person God is. Our resources are never enough, but God has limitless resources, enough for us to do what God wants done.
This miracle reveals the heart of God, who cares about our every need. Here, Jesus works with the little the apostles have to feed the multitude. Through his actions he reveals how God is towards us: nourishing, caring, lavish, and concerned for all our needs.
God also expects us to come to the aid of one another, and to share what little we have. Saint Teresa of Calcutta said about Jesus, “He uses us to be his love and compassion in the world in spite of our weaknesses and frailties.”
Let us pray for the courage we need to risk giving what we have.
