In the second miracle of the loaves and the fish, Jesus extended God’s prodigious love to the Gentiles. This miracle of multiplication signifies an abundance of divine gifts available to all who are ready to receive.

Sometimes the only obstacle to receiving a gift is a stoney heart. God does not exclude anyone form His generosity, yet sometimes we exclude ourselves by not being open to the miracle.

O Holy Spirit, cleanse my mind and heart of clutter and confusion. May I be open to receiving the gifts that God has planned for me today.
