In today's gospel, Jesus declares Himself to be the "bread of life" who satisfies our hunger and thirst (Jn. 6:35). The acid test of our faith is whether we trust the Lord, or give in to worry, when the scarcity of peace, happiness and abundance is evident. God who promises to provide all that we need will never fail nor forsake us. Let us confidently place our hands in the hand of the One who created the world, calmed the storm and provides for our needs. Lord Jesus, help us to trust You at all times, in abundance or scarcity, because we believe You will always supply all our needs according to Your riches in glory. Amen.
