Gospel: Jn 6:1-15
”How are we to buy bread so that these people may eat?”
It only means that we do whatever we can, even if it is little. Our Lord multiplies it a thousandfold. Sometimes Jesus makes us see how big the problem is, and how little we can do to resolve it. We are tested on where we place our trust: will it be on Him, or on our own efforts?
He still wants to see how much effort we exert and how we act during trying times. Passivity is also not for Him; he wants us to take action too. And not be overtaken by fear, doubt and negativity.
Do your sowing now, don’t put it off til later. He blesses our efforts and multiplies them. Fully depending on God is certainly tempting Him; do your 100%, and God will give His 100%.
