About Today Readings

Week I Psalter.

2 Kings 4:42-44. Psalm 144(145):10-11, 15-18. Ephesians 4:1-6. John 6:1-15.

The hand of the Lord feeds us; he answers all our needs—Psalm 144(145):10-11, 15-18.

‘They will eat and have some left over.’

Today’s readings call us to wake up, open our eyes and become aware of our creative God, giver of gifts. Elisha did not give the people strictly-rationed portions: ‘they ate and had some over’.

Jesus looks at the crowd that had gathered to hear him and to be healed. As a sign of the life he brings, Jesus feeds them with the five loaves and two fish, and feeds them abundantly.

It is worth taking time today to appreciate the immeasurable generosity of God.

How can I respond with anything less than praise?
