Loaves and Fishes-Perhaps
Reflecting on the story of the loaves and fishes I realized that the miracle of the story might be as simple as Jesus asking for help and finding one boy who was willing to share. Perhaps heaven didn't need to provide the bread and fish. Perhaps other people, who had food but were keeping it for themselves watched the boy, felt the spirit and had a change of heart. Perhaps when they all shared, when they all took a moment to think about other's needs, there was more than enough food for everyone. Perhaps the lesson Jesus needed to teach was how we can solve our problems if we work together. With the fear and anger in our communities perhaps the miracle we need most is the miracle of changing hearts.
