In his days uprightness shall flourish and peace in plenty ...

A sense of abundance comes through the story of the loaves and fishes. Twelve baskets were filled with the scraps after the five thousand were satisfied. Does this suggest the generosity of God? Can we assume that our earth contains more than we need? Surely we should not selfishly hoard the earthís resources but rather share them generously, ensuring they are distributed among all Godís people and trusting there will be sufficient for all.

Carrying this sense of abundance further into the spiritual realm, we can believe that peace and justice are possible for all if we rely on Godís word, not trusting in earthly laws but believing as the psalmist proclaims: ĎIn his days uprightness shall flourish and peace in plenty, till the moon is no more.í
