The small offering of food fed the crowd. This is a miracle of generosity. “Give them some food yourselves.” Friends, we can meet the needs of the hungry by sharing with them what we have. There is so much hunger and poverty around us, not because of scarcity but due to lack of generosity. Our compassion to the needy must be shown through our acts of mercy. Compassion without action is like a body without a soul. Today’s gospel is reminding us that where there is love there is always a miracle. Folks, if you want to see a miracle, BE THE MIRACLE.
We have a God who always provides more than what we need. God always satiates and satisfies us. Folks, God will not be outdone in His generosity. He is always trying to give the best to us but sometimes our hands are too full to receive them. By the way, we do not have to be rich to be generous. No one has ever become poor by giving. Be altruistic. Stop being egotistic!
