Much to share

John 6:1-15

Abundance has been a recurring theme for me recently. Not just enough but more than enough - and plenty to share. In the story of Jesus feeding the 5000 with 5 loaves and two fish, we see, not only people's hunger fed, but plenty more:
The disciples are challenged to come up with the goods
Not possible- the first response
followed closely by an assessment of cost
It's only some "out of the box" thinking
that sees potential in a picnic lunch
and in the possibility of sharing
The real miracle comes when the supply outstrips demand
and still there is more
When will we learn
that the God we serve
is a God of abundance
of extravagance
a God whose will
is for the same abundance
in our lives
in our communities
and in our world.
Enough to share
and more.
