Series: Generosity for the Journey
October 10, 2021 | Rev. Ramiro Rodriguez
Passage: John 6:5-14
Is your glass half empty or half full? The disciples of Jesus, and most of us, too often see scarcity and lacking, when Jesus sees opportunity and abundance. The story of the loaves and the fishes in chapter six of John is a great example of this. In the second week of the sermon series “Generosity for the Journey”, Rev. Ramiro Rodriguez encourages us to see abundance and provision for our needs instead of looking for problems and shortcomings that often overwhelm us. Today's scripture: John 6:5-14
No journey or trip is possible without the right supplies, planning, and support. Our generosity and our willingness to support the journey that God has called us to is what makes it possible to experience God’s love and presence in our life and in our world. Giving of our gifts is what makes God’s love and grace tangible and real for the people and helps us better understand our relationship with material things and know that all we have is a gift from God.
