Friday July 31st, John 6: 10 Jesus said, "Have the people sit down." There was plenty of grass in that place, and the men sat down, about five thousand of them. 11 Jesus then took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed to those who were seated as much as they wanted. He did the same with the fish. Part of the miracle is the blessing of Christ, the thankful blessing for what has been given. All we have is a gift from God for which we should forever be thankful. Additionally, part of the blessing we receive is the ability to share with one another, for what we are about to receive and the ability to share from this bounty, we thank you O Lord. If we focus only on the receiving, we still remain famished; bellies full maybe, but famished none the less. When we look at everything we have as a blessing from God and receive it in true thankfulness, for that is what it is, and in that thankfulness, share, we find that we are not only full, but satiated.
