“When he had taken the seven loaves and given thanks, he broke them and gave them to his disciples to distribute to the people”….
During the Covid months many days I wondered if I would have enough to make ends meet. Would I run out of food, toilet paper, supplies. … Spoiler alert……. I made it! I think of all the things I worry about and how many times God took the little I had and stretched it to become more than enough!
In today’s Gospel, Jesus knew that 7 loaves could not feed 4000 yet he knew that 7 loaves would feed the 4000. We know that God is going to answer our prayers, we know he’s going to work it all out, but instead of looking at the little we have and giving thanks we often worry.
Jesus looked at the little and knew that it would be more than enough because God will always make a way.
Giving thanks for what we have, will always lead to more than we can imagine. Give thanks today.
