This “tagline” underneath another meditator’s profile this morning caught my eye —
We always have enough when we share.
What a simple beautiful truth. The abundance we seek is not facilitated by storing up — but by giving away.
When we make a clearing — a larger space of nothingness in our own homes and hands and hearts — we are prepared to receive that which sustains us and others.
In this context, I find new meaning in the story of the loaves and fishes.
Wherever I see a limited amount, God is always capable of making a bottomless bread basket!
Therefore, my own finite assessments of what is possible are not the final word. God’s reach is infinite, boundaryless, endless.
I only need to share the first piece of bread with faith —
And then keep reaching in — with an empty hand — to receive the next piece to share.
Contemplation: I empty myself to receive more, share more.
