Wednesday of the 1st Week of Advent

There are times in life where we may feel as if no one is bothered about us, or people are too busy to notice us. This may cause some of us to feel unwanted, unloved, unappreciated and some may despair. However, today's Gospel reminds us that we have an Eternal Shepherd who is loving to all of us and willing to cure the lame, the crippled, the blind, the dumb and many others. Even when the crowd had been with Him for 3 days, clinging and pondering on His words, He did not want to send them off hungry, for they might collapse on the way. This led to a miracle of the multiplication of seven loaves and fish.

Seeing how loving and concerned Jesus is towards all of us, we need to look at ourselves and ponder sincerely. Have we been loving and concerned towards others, following the example of Jesus? Have we learnt to be generous in our giving, just as we have received God's generosity?
