Readings: Is. 55:1-3 | Ps. 145: 8-9, 15-18 | Rom. 8:35, 37-39 | Mt. 14:13-21
Paul asks us an important question today: Who will separate us from Christ? He responds that he is convinced that nothing will ever be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ. Isaiah backs that up with the words of God: “All who are thirsty, come to the water. Come without money or paying.” Jesus shows this great compassion in the Gospel. The people have been with Him for a long time. They have little to eat. He invites all to sit and provide for the huge crowd from five loaves and two fish.
God continues to provide for us. God looks upon our needs and does everything to take care of us. We don’t always recognize this because we don’t always see with God’s vision. However, God wants to give us all we need.
Take time to reflect on one or all three of these readings. How is God trying to nourish you through them? Be sure to allow for quiet time so God may enter in.
