Bread of compassion

Matthew 15:32-33
Feeding the Four Thousand
Then Jesus called his disciples to him and said, “I have compassion for the crowd, because they have been with me now for three days and have nothing to eat; and I do not want to send them away hungry, for they might faint on the way.” The disciples said to him, “Where are we to get enough bread in the desert to feed so great a crowd?”

Lord, as if you could ever send anyone away hungry,
The crowds came out to hear you,
followed you wherever you were
Their minds were fed
with all they could take
and more
But you worried not just about their souls
but about their bodies.
You filled them Spiritually 
and wanted to ensure
that their physical needs
were also met.
And still you see
each one
as a whole person
body, mind and spirit
and long to care 
and wholly
for all our needs today.
