Today’s Gospel describes the miracle of the multiplication of the loaves and fish. Many of us know the story of how Jesus took five barley loaves and two fish, gave thanks and shared them with the vast crowd. No one went away hungry. What does the miracle of the multiplication of the loaves say to us today? Perhaps Jesus teaches us by demonstrating God’s gracious abundance in the miracle of the multiplication. We share in and receive God’s lavish gift of love in our need. As Jesus cared for the crowd, God cares for and nourishes each of us. Our gratitude for God’s gift of love can move us to share with our neighbor. Even when it seems we do not have sufficient time or energy, God’s gracious abundance provides more than enough to do His will.
